CAIRO (AP) – Officials say Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan have resumed negotiations over a giant hydroelectric dam that Ethiopia is building on the Blue Nile.
Sunday’s talks were held online. The Ethiopian and Egyptian officials did not give a time frame for the talks. Years of negotiations with a variety of mediators, including the Trump administration, have failed to produce a solution.
Egypt and Sudan suspended talks with Ethiopia earlier this month, after Addis Ababa proposed linking a deal on the filling and operations of its dam to a broader agreement about Blue Nile waters. Both downstream nations have repeatedly insisted Ethiopia must not start filling the reservoir without reaching a deal first.
