Sudan asks for German advice in regards to Renaissance Dam

Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti has requested for Germany to present its opinion, technical advice and expertise based on the German experience in order to reach a satisfactory conclusion for all parties in the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam Project, according to Masr Al-Arabia news website.

During a meeting with the chairperson and members of the Committee on Economic Cooperation and Development in the German parliament, Sudan News Agency quoted Karti as affirming the importance of resolving contentious issues, in regards to the safety of the Ethiopian dam and its impact on Egypt's share of water from the Blue Nile, through dialogue and with the informed opinion of experts and specialists, not through statements and accusations in the media, highlighting Sudan's initiative in resolving the crisis between Egypt and Ethiopia over the Renaissance Dam.

The Sudanese foreign minister praised the strong bilateral relations between Sudan and Germany, and presented to the committee an explanation of President Omar Al-Bashir's initiative for national dialogue, pointing out that it does not exclude anyone, and includes all the issues in a way that is unprecedented for Sudan.

Karti also presented an explanation of the situation in the countries neighbouring Sudan, especially in South Sudan, noting the importance of peace and stability returning there as the two countries share historical ties and common interests. He further clarified that Sudan has opened up its borders to all those affected by the conflict in South Sudan to live as citizens and not refugees, in addition to providing humanitarian aid including food, clothing and education for all those affected by the ongoing war in South Sudan.
