The Egyptian foreign ministry summoned the Ethiopian Chargé d’Affairs to Cairo on Wednesday to provide clarifications over comments made by the spokesman of the Ethiopian foreign ministry, it said, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

The comments “addressed” Egyptian internal affairs, the ministry added without providing more details.

It was not immediately clear what comments had angered Egypt. Egyptian officials were not immediately available to comment.

However, Qatar’s Al Jazeera Media Network reported earlier today that Dina Mufti, the Ethiopian foreign ministry spokesperson, attacked Cairo for criticizing a giant dam that Addis Ababa is building on the Blue Nile and using the project to cover several internal problems.
