He also makes clear as the three countries ministerial meeting was fruitful.

Meles also expressed his belief as the discussions will transform the countries cooperation and fraternity.

The meeting is historic to members of the TNC as they have witnessed the construction of GERD first hand, he said, adding this will enhance understanding among the three countries.

Meles also said the Dam's construction has continued with increased public fervor in general as well as construction and other experts in particular.
