Egypt's share of the Nile river's water is 'untouchable'.
And if that supply is affected by the Ethiopian Grand Renaissance dam, there will be severe regional consequences.
That's the warning from the Egyptian president who's country is in a years-long dispute with Ethiopia over the hydropower project.
Ethiopia is building the $5B mega-dam on the Blue Nile river.
Talks to resolve the standoff have stalled
Ethiopia started to fill the dam's reservoir last year with no deal in place.
So does that mean El Sisi will go to war?
And has diplomacy run out?
