Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia resume GERD talks after over a year

Negotiations on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) resumed yesterday after having stopped for more than a year, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry told reporters, according to AMAY. Deputy Foreign Minister for African Affairs, Hamdi Sanad Loza, had expressed unease at the drawn-out negotiations over the weekend. Criticism of GERD had also intensified over the weekend, when President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said at the Youth Conference that GERD would not have been built were it not for “the mistakes” of the 2011 uprising, according to Ahram Online.
