Egypt, Sudan Coordinate Stance On Ethiopia Dam

Water Resources Minister Mohamed Abdel Mottaleb held on Tuesday 3/12/2013 talks with his Sudanese counterpart to prepare for a tripartite meeting comprising Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia on Sunday in Khartoum.

In light of Ethiopia's construction of the controversial Renaissance Dam on the River Nile, the two downstream countries' officials also tackled coordinated decisions regarding this matter.

On his part, Abdel Mottaleb said that an agreement had been reached among the Eastern Nile water ministers on the recommendations of the three-party committee with regard to the dam in question, but the differences lie in the mechanism of implementing these recommendations upon which an agreement had been reached in Khartoum meeting held last month.
