Addis Ababa, 12 December 2013 (WIC) - The Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy said the talks held in Khartoum between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project was successful.
In an exclusive interview with ENA on Tuesday, the Minister Alemayehu Tegenu said they have addressed a significant part of the issues on the follow-up of the implementation of the recommendations of the international panel of experts.
He said the water related ministers of the countries discussed the composition of the committee which would follow through on expert recommendations about the Grand Renaissance project.
Ministers from the three nations failed to agree on the composition of the committee which would follow through on expert recommendations about the Grand Renaissance project at a meeting in Khartoum last month.
He said Egypt wanted international representatives on the committee, but Ethiopia proffered national delegates, which the countries agreed on.
The Minister said the three countries have also agreed on the time of establishment of the committee and to cover its cost.
Alemayehu said the three countries will meet in Khartoum from January 4-5 to address the differences over the remaining issues.
