It is worth taking the matter through face to face discussions. War is not the 21st motto.

Egyptians shouldn't start war they can't win. Remember the source of Nile is in Ethiopia.

United Nation should get involved in resolving this conflict peacefully. Ethiopians don't want war.

The Egyptian authorities should stop thinking of the colonial era and harping on the 1959 partial agreement excluding Ethiopia.Abay is the child of Ethiopia and its birth place is TANA.So how could your own child be a gift to someone else?
