(CNN)Negotiations between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt, in a long-running dispute over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) on the Blue Nile, have reached a brand new deadlock, the three nations mentioned on Sunday.
“We can’t proceed this vicious cycle of round talks indefinitely,” Sudanese irrigation minister Yasir Abbas mentioned in an announcement.
Nonetheless, Egypt and Ethopia, in separate statements, blamed Sudanese objections to the framework for the talks for the brand new deadlock.
Ethiopia sees the dam as key to plans to turn out to be Africa’s largest energy exporter. Egypt, which will get greater than 90% of its scarce contemporary water from the Nile, fears the dam may devastate its economic system.
