A presidential aide has apologised for failing to inform attendees that a national meeting about the Ethiopian dam was being aired live on television.

“It was initially planned that the national meeting would be recorded and aired the next day, as is usually the case, but due to the importance of the topic it was decided at the last minute to air the meeting live. I forgot to inform the attendees about the changes,” presidential aide for political affairs Pakinam El-Sharqawy said via Facebook late on Monday.

Several political figures expressed anger at the mistake because they expressed views they thought would remain secret.

Liberal Ghad Party leader Ayman Nour said he was shocked that the meeting had been screened live without informing the participants. It was a “big mistake” because sensitive information was being discussed, he added.

The presidential meeting was convened to discuss the findings of an eagerly awaited report by a tripartite commission – including Egyptian, Sudanese and Ethiopian representatives – tasked with studying the Ethiopian dam's potential impact on downstream states.

GOD OF ETHIOPIA !!!
It is the God of Ethiopia who exposed the evil face of Egypt, for us Ethiopians there is nothing new we know it but, were not able to expose Egypt's true nature, now in the right time God makes it for us. Now the world knows the true color of Egypt.

Egypt should learn from past history. Any attempt to attack Ethiopia will result in an adverse consequence. Don't forget that you are not only fighting with Ethiopia but also with other black African countries. Moreover, both Ethiopia and Israel have the potential to destroy both Aswan and Egypt.

This shows you how corrupt and deceptive the regime is. They are not friends of Ethiopia, nor do they respect Ethiopia. No nation that tries to destabilize another by supporting terrorist/separatist groups, is friendly. If there is any moment when Ethiopians should stop bickering and hating each other so much and unite, this is it. And the same goes with other Africans. Stop fighting over ethnic differences that no one else really cares about. While you're fighting each other, the North is conspiring. It's very easy to understand. So wake up.
