Tripartite meetings between Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia regarding the Ethiopian Renaissance dam project will kick off today in Sudanese capital of Khartoum.
The spokesman of Sudan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry, Ambassador Ali Al-Sadiq, told reporters on Monday that the talks will be extended for two days and considered as continuation to the previous talks held in Khartoum last August with the participation of the Ministers of irrigation in the three countries, pointing out that the current meeting will be attended by Sudan’s Foreign Minister, Ali Karti, and his two Egyptian and Ethiopian counterparts who arrived Sudan on Monday evening.
The ministers of irrigation and water in these three countries signed last September an agreement to form a committee of national experts to bridge gaps in views of Ethiopian renaissance.
The Egyptian foreign minister Samih Shoukri along with the minister of water resources Hussam Maghazi arrived on Monday evening to participate in the meetings which will address the political and technical aspects of the dam.
Egypt fears that the construction of the 4.3 billion dollar dam project will diminish its water share which is a source of water to millions people of the desert nation.
Up on completion by 2017, the Grand Ethiopian renaissance dam will have electricity generating capacity of 6,000 megawatt.
Currently the power plant project which will be Africa’s largest is 36% completed and will take the east African nation up to six years to fill the dam’s 74 billion cubic-meter reservoir
