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. –
