The Egyptian capital Cairo has been rocked by violent protests for the past two weeks. The protests are over the Islamist leader of Egypt President Mohammed Morsi, who self-issued a constitutional decree in November monopolizing all the powers of the country for himself effectively morphing to the former despot Hosni Mubarak.
The demonstrations have become more and more violent and thousands of citizens has gathered in front of the presidential palace.
While Egypt is embroiled itself on violent demonstrations its key ally in the Horn of Africa the tiny nation of Eritrea is shaking out of its boots. Eritrea is left with no friends and it fears its giant super power neighbor Ethiopia is circling to deliver the final blow.
Eritrea reassures its support for Egypt on Nile River water share, back in 2011 Eritrean Ambassador to Egypt held talks with the Egyptian Prime Minister, Dr. Esam Sheref.
In the meeting, the Ambassador conveyed the Eritrean peoples message of congratulation to the Egyptian people in connection with the victory of the January 25 Revolution. He also expressed Eritreas readiness to work jointly with Egypt in all domains, especially the allocation of the Nile River waters.
