Ethiopia and Egypt agree


Egypt gets 85% of its water share from the Blue Nile that has its source in Ethiopia's Lake Lana and only 15% from the White Nile. The two tributaries meet in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, before the stream proceeds onward to Egypt. 


Egyptians have for a considerable length of time appreciated the lot of the Nile's water, a status affirmed by frontier time understandings of 1902 and 1929 made by the British and a 1959 respective bargain among Egypt and Sudan. The last assigned Egypt 55.5 billion cubic meters of Nile water and Sudan 18.5 billion cubic meters. 


The Ethiopians have since quite a while ago saw the state of affairs as out of line as they look to build up their own ruined economy
