The Prime Minister of Sudan, Dr. Abdallah Hamdok, received yesterday the Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sameh Shoukry, and the Egyptian Minister of Irrigation, Mohamed Abdel-Aty. Shoukry and Abdel-Aty had held an expanded session of talks with their Sudanese counterparts, to discuss bilateral relations and issues of common interest. Shoukry and Abdel-Aty headed to Khartoum, as part of the ongoing efforts to strengthen the strategic relations that bring the two countries together, as well as the ongoing consultations on various issues of common concern, foremost of which is the Renaissance Dam issue. Abdel-Aty had confirmed, a few days ago, that any action taken regarding the Renaissance Dam, without reaching a fair and binding legal agreement, and without coordination with the two downstream countries, is a unilateral act that is rejected. Cairo and Khartoum fear for their share of the Nile water, and accuse Addis Ababa of intransigence and the failure of negotiations on the Renaissance Dam.
