African Union-Led Talks On Nile Dam Dispute Set to Resume

In the spirit of finding "African solutions to Africa's problems", AU chair President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa has announced the resumption of trilateral talks between Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan in a bid to resolve the dispute over the building of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam across the Nile. His announcement follows days after President Donald Trump of the United States criticised Ethiopia for allegedly breaking a deal he brokered to end the dispute.


Previous negotiations between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt in Addis Ababa over the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam have failed to find a resolution of the dispute over the dam's potential to disrupt the flow of the Nile.
