CAIRO, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Ethiopian embassy in Cairo will suspend its work in Egypt starting in October for three to six months due to economic reasons, announced the Ethiopian Ambassador to Egypt Markos Tekle Rike.

According to Egypt's official Ahram online news website on Sunday, the ambassador explained that the decision has nothing to do with the dispute over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) among Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan.

He added that the embassy's commissioner will manage its affairs during the suspension, Ahram reported.

Ethiopia has recently decided to close dozens of its embassies in many countries due to its economic crisis. Enditem
