“We are not doing the right thing because of [the] requests [of] Egyptians; we are doing the right thing because we are acting under international rules and principles.”

The Foreign Minister said this to an Egyptian journalist who asked what his message to the Egyptian people is concerning the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, at the end of the fifth Ethio-Egyptian Joint Ministerial Commission meeting held from November 1-3, 2014 in Addis Ababa.   

During the three-day meeting, the two parties signed a cooperation agreement on various issues, including trade and education.  

Alongside the minsters’ meeting, a joint business forum, which brought together about 100 business people from both countries, was held on November 2, 2014. The two sides said the meeting was successful and scheduled their next ministerial meeting for 2016 in Egypt. In addition to issues that revolve around the common interest of the two countries, they also addressed the political situation in countries like Somalia, South Sudan, Libya, Burkina Faso and Palestine. Resolving the conflicts facing these countries through peaceful means was the agreed upon approach by both countries.

    Unlike Twitter's 140 character restriction, Google+ lets users post more in depth content.
    Facebook jumped for the most simple and intuitive word for
    liking something there is. People often use text messaging
    rather than building a telephone call, and instant messaging may be the
    equal to text messages with each platform's Vo - IP system being the comparable
    to a call.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is
    pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  • Elder Scrolls online strategy guide

    TES has never had the best NPC acting, but Elder Scrolls online
    takes it to a whole new level of disappointment.
    Danger Close Pro increases air support damage and
    is unlocked by getting 100 kills with explosives using Danger Close.
    Every year a single player RPG comes along to fill
    the void, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Mass
    Effect are examples of games that have scratched that particular itch in the last couple of years, Dragon Age: Origins is the newest entry in that respected line of games, also, it's
    the spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate. Consider: It'll cost you
    some extra Kinah, but consider springing for an extra copy.
    Dark Horse's current run is probably the best the license has had in comics since the seventies when Buscema was drawing for the book.
    Morrowind, launched 6 years immediately after Daggerfall,
    rebooted the sequence in a very massive way, it introduced a brand new entire world with improved graphics and gameplay.
    Consider getting your giftee some of the Champions books. Scrambler Pro increases the detonation time of enemy
    claymores allowing you to run past before
    they explode. It becomes even worse when you reach skill level 50 and can unlock the Great
    Critical Charge perk, which causes your power attack
    to do double critical damage if you attack while sprinting.
    Now all you have to do is connect all the pieces to
    the bottom and on the right side.
