Egypt’s President, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, will visit Sudan and Ethiopia for 3 days beginning Monday, according to a high-level presidential source.
The source, who asked not to be named, told Anadolu News Agency on Tuesday that the visit to Sudan and Ethiopia will be during the period from 23 to 25 March, disclosing that al-Sisi will pay visit to Sudan next Monday in which he will meet Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir where the two parties would discuss the ways to develop bilateral relations.
The source added that Egyptian president will visit to Ethiopia on Tuesday, during which he will meet with Ethiopian Prime Minister Haile Mariam Dessalines and a number of senior officials, noting the talks between the two countries will deal with the development of bilateral relations and a number of regional and African issues of mutual interest as well as to follow up on latest developments in the efforts to reach an agreement on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD)
The talks, which started in Khartoum on Tuesday, focused on the sharing of the Nile river waters between the countries and resolving a dispute over a hydroelectric dam being built by Addis Ababa.
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.
