Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shokry met Monday with his Somalian counterpart Absher Omar Gamea to confer over bolstering bilateral relations and coordination on matters of mutual interest.
The meeting also tackled the Turkish measures regarding the construction of dams on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, which caused water stress in the downstream countries of Iraq and Syria.
Ethiopia has been rejecting to sign of a legally binding agreement on the filling and operation of the dam.
Desertification, climate change and biodiversity loss were identified as the biggest challenges to sustainable development during the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.
World Youth Forum (WYF) recommended producing new crops that can resist drought as well as salinity and need less irrigation water.
