A high-level meeting grouping the foreign and water resources ministers of Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia will take place in Washington on Monday 9/12/2019 under the sponsorship of the US treasury secretary for talks on the under-construction Renaissance Dam.
The ministers will assess the outcome of the two previous meetings that mainly addressed the mechanism of filling and operating the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) being built on the Blue Nile, according to a statement by the Water Resources Ministry Sunday.
This is the third meeting of four rounds of talks being held in accordance with an agreement reached in a US-brokered meeting between the three parties in Washington in November to break the deadlock in negotiations.
The first meeting was held in Ethiopia on November 15-16 and the second meeting was held in Cairo on December 2-3.
