Egypt has denied Ethiopian accusations that his country was supporting the opposition after a wave of violent protests that left hundreds dead.
Ethiopia accused “elements” in Eritrea, Egypt and elsewhere on Monday of being behind protests over land grabs and human rights that prompted the government to declare a state of emergency.
Ethiopia’s government spokesman said Egypt, which is embroiled in a row over the sharing of Nile waters, alleging this was a source for backing armed gangs.
President Abdel Fattah Al-Sissi denying those accusations said Egypt does not conspire against anyone, and assure Ethiopia that Egypt will not carry out any conspiratorial action against Ethiopia.”
