CAIRO - 15 July 2020: The Sudanese government said Tuesday that his country submitted a report on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) to the African Union after the end of the negotiations between the ministers of irrigation of Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopian.
 
The report mentioned that not much progress was achieved during the negotiations that lasted 11 days.
The Egyptian member of the negotiating committee, Alaa El Zawahry, said that the Egyptian report will include the number of meetings, whether they were bilateral or tripartite, led by prime ministers, and the exchanged opinions on technical and legal issues.
El Zawahry added in press statements that Egypt and Sudan agreed in several points, while the points of agreement between Ethiopia and Sudan were very limited.
El Zawahry said that the report will also include the Egyptian compromises made to realize a final agreement, which were met by Ethiopian intransigence.
 
The United Nations Security Council gave two weeks to the African Union to realize an agreement between the three countries on GERD.
