Uganda and Egypt have signed a military intelligence sharing agreement, the east African country said late on Wednesday, against a backdrop of rising tensions between. This, Times Live reports, as Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has warned of the risk of conflict over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam which Ethiopia is building on the Blue Nile. Uganda, where the Nile begins, has historically opposed Egypt’s attempts to exercise control over hydropower projects in upstream countries but the two countries, according to the agreement, will now “share resourceful intelligence on a regular basis.”
