Sudan News Agency reported that the Designated Foreign Minister Omar Qamar al-Din and Minister of Irrigation and Alternate Resources, Yasser Abbas, will participate in the ministerial meeting of the Renaissance Dam negotiations, which will resume on Sunday.
The meeting will be chaired by Pana Dora, Minister of International Cooperation of the Republic of South Africa, which is chairing the current session of the African Union.
An official source told SUNA that the meeting would discuss Sudan’s proposal to activate the negotiations by giving a greater role to the African Union through its experts to reach a binding legal agreement on the Grand Renaissance Dam, as per Sudan’s previous request.
The source added that the draft understanding prepared by the AU experts will be considered to reach a satisfactory agreement for the three parties.
Earlier, the Sudanese Foreign Ministry warned Ethiopia not to start the second phase of filling the Renaissance Dam without an agreement with Cairo and Khartoum.
