Sudan’s Foreign Minister, Ali Karti, revealed on Friday that Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia had reached the basis of an agreement on the sharing of Nile waters and Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam.
"A full agreement has been reached between our three countries on the principles of the use of the eastern Nile Basin and the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam," Karti added
Sudan’s top diplomat hailed the basis as "a new path in the relations of our three countries" but gave no further details of the document.
For his part, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that the agreement sets forth "principles governing cooperation between the three countries on the use of the eastern Nile Basin and the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, pointing out that the deal will usher in "the beginning of further cooperation' between the three states. His Ethiopian counterpart Tedros Adhanom said the agreed principles would open "new chapter" in relations between the three states.
Egypt fears Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam project would diminish its share of the river waters.
In several rounds of talks, Ethiopia has said the project will have no effect on Sudan and Egypt downstream.
