Dubai, Daily Times: - The Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Damqi Mekonnen, had a telephone conversation with the Norwegian Foreign Minister, En Eriksen Suried, which focused on a number of issues, including the latest regional developments, according to a statement by the Ethiopian Foreign Ministry.

Mekonnen told his Norwegian counterpart that Ethiopia "looks forward to reaching an agreement on Enahdha Dam between countries ahead of the rainy season" in the summer of 2021.

The Ethiopian Foreign Minister affirmed his country's commitment to reaching an agreement on Enahdha Dam with both Sudan and Egypt, ahead of the next rainy season, which is scheduled to witness the second filling process of the dam.

And he continued, "Ethiopia is negotiating sincerely with Sudan and Egypt so far," adding that his country "hopes to reach solutions under the leadership of the Congo in the negotiations of the Renaissance Dam."

Earlier, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok warned that filling the Grand Ethiopian Enahdha Dam without reaching a binding agreement constitutes a threat to Sudan's dams.

Hamdok's statements came during his meeting at his office in the capital, Khartoum, with Ntumba Luaba, the envoy of the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the current president of the African Union, Felix Tshisekedi.

In a statement, the Sudanese Prime Minister expressed his appreciation to the Congolese delegation and to Kinshasa's initiative to reach a diplomatic solution to Enahdha Dam file, and briefed them on the development of the file.

Hamdok stressed that the filling process unilaterally without reaching a binding agreement for the three countries poses a threat to the Sudanese dams, and the security, safety and property of the citizens who reside on the banks of the Nile under Enahdha Dam.

The head of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, also confirmed Sudan's support for an initiative put forward by the Democratic Republic of the Congo to reach a diplomatic solution to the Renaissance Dam file.

Enahdha Dam, which Addis Ababa is about to complete, is still the subject of a dispute between the three countries (Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan), as no final agreement has been reached on it despite the multiple negotiation rounds that were sponsored by Washington at one time and the African Union at other times, in addition to tripartite meetings that did not Produce a solution to thorny issues.
