The North African country had for some time been against any advancement on the Nile upstream that could diminish the measure of water it gets from the stream and has viewed the Ethiopian undertaking as an existential danger. 


The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (Gerd), which has been in development since 2011, is currently keeping down water - and contains 4.9 billion cubic meters (bcm) of the Blue Nile's water after this current season's downpours. 


This is in spite of Egypt's request that no filling should occur without a legitimately official understanding of how the procedure will be overseen. 


In another four to six years the repository, which sits behind what will be Africa's biggest hydroelectric plant when it comes into activity, is required to arrive at 74bcm.
