NAIROBI (Somaliguardian) – Sudan and Ethiopia held talks on the controversial Renaissance Dam in Khartoum on Thursday, the first since African Union-sponsored negotiations in Congo had broken down in April last year, Sudan Tribune reported on Friday.

It came after Ethiopia had begun producing electricity last month from its Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) amid concerns raised by its downstream neighbors, Sudan and Egypt that the operating of the hydro-power plant will cause water shortages.

Sudanese Minister of Irrigation and Ethiopian Ambassador to Sudan were among the officials present at the meeting, who both stressed the necessity of restoring friendly relations and addressing Sudanese fears over water shortages due to the operation of the dam.
