Sudan Calls For Head of State Level Dam Talks With Ethiopia

Sudan has called for raising the negotiation on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) from the ministerial level to the level of head of state.

“The negotiation must be raised from the ministerial level to the level of presidents of the three countries through the African Union in order to provide political support for the negotiations,” Sudanese Irrigation and Water Resources Minister, Yasir Abbas declared at a press conference in the capital, Khartoum.

“Continuation of the negotiations in the current form will not be effective,” Abbas adds, noting Sudan’s commitment to negotiation any time and anywhere.

Reaching a deal in Nile dam talks needs a decision from the highest political leaderships in the three countries, he explains.
