Ethiopia Whispers Sweet Nothings to Egypt Over Nile Waters

Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has launched a charm offensive to calm tensions with Egypt over the construction of what will be Africa's largest hydroelectric plant on the Nile River. "Addis Ababa has no desire or idea to harm the Egyptian people. We believe that we should benefit from this river, the Nile, but when we benefit we should not do harm to the Egyptian people,'' Ahmed said.
