Mediations over Ethiopian dam
Khartoum – The new chair of the African Union arrived in Sudan on Saturday for talks over Ethiopia’s controversial Nile dam, state media reported.
The visit by Felix Tshisekedi, president of the Democratic Republic of Congo, came as Sudan and Egypt push Ethiopia for a deal over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance dam.
Ethiopia wants the electricity the structure will generate, but downstream Egypt and Sudan fear for their own dams and vital water supplies. –
