Sudan calls Ethiopia’s GERD proposal “a retreat from previously agreed upon principles”

Sudan calls Ethiopia’s GERD proposal “a complete retreat from previously agreed upon principles,” according to an Irrigation Ministry statement. That said, Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia appeared to make modest progress yesterday on technical issues; talks will continue today.

Egypt has said it would seek “other political options” including reaching out to the UN Security Council if Ethiopia remains “intransigent,” according to a Foreign Ministry statement.
