President Hosni Mubarak will not attend this year's annual African Union (AU) summit in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa. Instead, Prime Minister Ahmad Nazif will be representing Egypt at the summit in the president's stead.

The AU mentioned in a statement that the 2011 summit’s theme is "Towards Greater Unity and Integration through Shared Values."

The 16th summit will be preceded by the 21st Session of the Permanent Representatives Committee (PRC) and the 18th session of the Executive Council on 24 and 27 January respectively.

Relations between Egypt and Ethiopia have been tense lately especially after Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi accused Cairo of supporting Ethiopian rebel groups in an effort to destabilise the country.

Mubarak has categorically denied Zenawi’s allegations.

Never
I have never seen as blind as the Egyptian government, even if i am Egyptian, i don't support the stand of our government, Eygpt and Ethiopia must use the water fairly, otherwise, we dont have any garantee, the ethiopians can use it the whole water as we noted for the last 7 years their ecomy is growing fast, the power balance could be shifted in the coming few years. so no matter who is powerful, let's use it fairly and together

Msg to Mubarek
Mr. Mubarek; Shukran, we do not want to see you in Ethiopia!! We prefer even not to see your representative in Addis!! It is not so far to see the damn Mubarek kicked of Power and see the round table diplomatic and modern way of negotiation. Ethiopians are not Egyptians who are ruled cruelly for decades!! we fought this for our life and now is Our external enemies turn unless they prefer to diplomatically and transparently plus fairly negotiate. Thanks Ahram online for posting our msg to Mubarek

Mubarak not attending summit
It is a reality that Mubarak has been funding and arming separatist factions who are hellbent to destablize Ethiopia for the obvious reason that Ethiopia's development effort might be derailed which is feutile. Egypt's role in the middle east has diminished with passage of time. It is no longer a power to be reckoned with; therefore, negotiation is the only venue for collective growth. Egypt must not be selfish by seeking to utilize the Nile all for itself. Why should Ethiopians die while Egyptians thrive? You are selling agricultural products like fruits using our water resources all over the world. Egypt's case is not about necessity but greed; and this is blindness and you need to open your eyes. Mubarak's absence does not dent the summit.
