Ethiopian foreign minister outrages Egyptians with 'Nile is ours' tweet, as US 'considers sanctions'

Ethiopia's foreign minister outraged Egyptians on Wednesday with a hubristic tweet claiming "The Nile is Ours", one week after it took a notable step in completing its controversial upsteam Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam [GERD] project.

Gedu Andargachew tweet read: "Congratulations! It was the Nile River and the river became a lake. It will no longer flow into the river. Ethiopia will have all the development it wants from it. In fact the Nile is ours!"

It comes amid reports that the US is considering sanctions against Ethiopia over its refusal to enter into a final agreement with Sudan and Egypt about the future status of the Nile.
