Interim Prime Minister, Essam Sharaf, on Monday sat down with Ethiopia’s ambassador to Egypt, Ibrahim ‎‎Edriss, in a meeting that saw the latter emphasise that his country is willing to turn a ‎new page and get over the Nile Basin Saga.‎

Edriss suggested a different type of co-operation between both ‎countries, after tensions ‎escalated of late, due to a lengthy conflict over water shares.‎
 
Ethiopia's government had previously said that it plans to build a hydroelectric power dam along ‎‎the Blue Nile River, despite objections from Egypt and Sudan.
