Ethiopia's water minister Seleshi Bekele admitted on Wednesday that the reservoir behind the damn is filling and that the water level has increased from 1,720 feet (525 metres) to 1,837 feet (560 metres).

'The construction of the dam and the filling of the water go hand in hand. The filling of the dam doesn't need to wait until the completion of the dam,' he said.

Italy built the dam, and China/Germany built the power plant.

The dam itself is a mountain --- 10 million tons of concrete. Even nuclear bombs cannot destroy it completely.

"Previously the Nile was flowing, and it is in a lake now, Ethiopia got its desired development. Nile is ours!",- Ethiopian Foreign Minister Andargashu said in a message of congratulations on Twitter

The threatening attitude of Egypt was really idiotic and bad, but now, also this Ethiopian respond is not a right language that comply to diplomacy.

Apparently, Egypt's semi-official statements made Ethiopian bureaucracy very angry. Provocative statements were responded in the same way.

To all those wet dreamers out there.. Egypt will never lose its share of the Nile's water.. what is being negotiated is what will happen in case of a long time drought of 10 years or more..like it has happened before.. and how is Ethiopia can guarantee to keep the DAM flexible in that eventuality..

With what and how?

Egypt will have her share of water, but not the level she is enjoying now...You all need to be realistic...Soudan is facing the same...and starts seeing it now..the filling of the dam has dried a big part of the Nile...
