"Mr President, I remember 30 years ago, back in 1985, Bob Geldof and others organised Live Aid to raise relief funds for the ongoing Ethiopian famine. We now risk a new famine in Ethiopia because of water control of the Nile. Unlike democratic Ethiopia, the Egyptian military ruler in the neighbouring country is causing problems by trying to enforce an old colonial right over the Nile. I think this is not sustainable; I think that Ethiopia, which contributes over 80% of the waters of the Nile, should have access to the Nile, not just for generating electricity but also for agriculture, and for feeding and providing water for its citizens. I think that we should look at the water rights of all the countries of that region."@en1
