The consultative meeting of the technical and legal delegations from Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia pertaining to the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), wrapped up in Khartoum on Thursday 23/01/2020.
The meeting aimed at resuming talks on the rules of filling and operating the dam's reservoir as well as outlining a draft agreement on that score.
The meeting was held in light of the outcome of the meeting of foreign and irrigation ministers of the three countries held in Washington on January 13 to 15.
Washington meeting issued a statement which determined some elements and key terms as regards the final agreement on the Dam's operation system as well as the measures to be followed during the times of drought so as not to harm Egypt's water quotas.
The ministers had agreed that the final agreement would include a mechanism for coordination among the three countries to follow up on the implementation of the agreement as well as a mechanism to settle any disputes.
