El Sisi, Ahmed to meet for GERD talks in Russia

El Sisi, Ahmed to meet for GERD talks in Russia: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said yesterday that he will meet with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in Russia to discuss the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), Reuters reports. “I agreed with the Ethiopian prime minister to meet in Moscow and to discuss the issue to move forward, and God willing, things will go in a way that helps to solve this issue in one way or another,” El Sisi said during a military forum yesterday. It is unclear when they will meet, but they will both be in Russia for the Russian-African summit which kicks off in Sochi on 23 October. This comes after the two leaders pledged to come to an agreement during a phone call at the weekend following a week of heightened tensions over the stalled talks. The story was also picked up by the Associated Press.
