Tripartite resume talks on Nile dam


Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia will hold a new round of talks over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) issue under the patronage of African Union (AU), official SUNA news agency reported.

“This meeting will discuss Sudan’s proposal aimed at reactivating the negotiations via giving a greater role for the AU experts to reach a binding legal agreement on the GERD according to Sudan’s previous request and then look into the draft of understanding prepared by the AU experts to reach a satisfactory deal for the three parties,” the agency quoted a source saying.

Ministers of foreign affairs and irrigation of Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia are expected to participate in the talks on Sunday.
