The latest visit to Egypt by Ethiopian PM was in January by former PM Hailemariam Desalegn, during which he asserted that his country will not put Egyptians life at risk, as the disagreement between Egypt, Ethiopia, and Sudan continues over the countries shares of Nile waters after Ethiopia completes constructions of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).
Egypt has lately been concerned about the effect that an Ethiopian dam being built on the Nile river would have on water flowing to its fields downstream.
"We have come a long way in building confidence with Ethiopia, he said".
"I would like to reiterate that the relation between Egypt and Ethiopia is a strategic partnership relation, and that Egypt's strategic policy is to enhance common interests with Ethiopia in all fields", the Egyptian president told the news conference.
Ethiopia and Egypt have been trading war of words sometime back after Egyptian president ranted "Nile is a matter of life and death for Egypt" - connoting that it is a red line.
On May 16, the irrigation ministers of all three countries that share the Nile agreed to establish a scientific study group on how the dam would be filled and agreed to hold meetings every six months on the matter. Since then, tensions have mounted after repeated rounds of talks failed.
"The meetings of the ministerial committees are unable to make key breakthroughs without consensus at the level of political leaderships", Raslan told Xinhua. River Nile and Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam project, which has been a controversial issue between to two countries for the last few years, is also expected to be in the agenda for discussion between the two leaders.
Diplomatic tensions between Egypt and Ethiopia have seen on the rise since the dam project started in 2011.
When President Sisi took office in 2014, he showed understanding of Ethiopia's aspiration for development through the new dam.
