Ethiopia: Renaissance Dam Upcoming Meetings


Agencies – Sudan Events

Ethiopia confirmed that it “seeks to negotiate with Egypt and Sudan in order to find a solution to the Renaissance Dam crisis, especially in light of this sensitive stage that is witnessing unrest in a number of countries in the Middle East region.”

In statements to the Arab World News Agency (AWP), the advisor to the Ethiopian Minister of Water and Energy, Mohammad Al-Arousi, ruled out “a complete consensus between Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan during a new round of talks on the Renaissance Dam in Addis Ababa later this month,” saying that “ “It is too early to talk about the Ethiopian agenda in this round of negotiations.”

Al-Arousi added, “It is difficult to predict the results of this round of negotiations, and we believe that it is not an easy task. We may be able to make progress on many issues, but this progress does not necessarily mean finding a complete consensus, as it may take a long time until we reach this consensus.”

He pointed out that “Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi had agreed in Cairo last July on the necessity of activating the negotiating process and declared their serious desire to reach solutions.”

He pointed out that “the negotiators have failed so far to reach any solutions, and this round will attempt to avoid the factors of failure, and will be by proposing logical solutions that preserve the mutual interests of the three countries.”
