Sudanese Water Minister arrives in Cairo to discuss the diversion of Nile River

Sudan's Water Resources Minister Osama Abdullah al-Hassan arrived in Cairo on Wednesday morning for talks on the repercussions of Ethiopia's diversion of the Blue Nile to build a new dam. The Sudanese minister will discuss with Egyptian officials the effect of the Nile's diversion on Egypt's and Sudan's share of water, the state news agency MENA reported. Ethiopia began diverting a stretch of the Nile on Tuesday to make way for the hydroelectric Grand Renaissance Dam. A tripartite committee comprising representatives from Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia is expected to issue today a report on yesterday's events. Source (
