The Blue Nile is a tributary of the Nile, from which Egypt’s 100 million people get 90% of their fresh water.
Egypt and Sudan expressed concerns about the “unilateral filling”, which they said “cast a shadow on the meeting and raised many questions about the feasibility of the current course of negotiations and reaching a fair agreement”, Egypt’s Irrigation Ministry said in a statement. ■
