Egypt has told the United Nations it faces an existential threat, from a hydroelectric dam that Ethiopia is building on the Blue Nile River.
Ethiopia is expected to start filling the Grand Renaissance Dam with water next month.
But at a virtual meeting of the Security Council, Egypt warned of conflict if the UN does not intervene.
Al Jazeera’s James Bays reports from the UN headquarters in New York.
