Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan launch new Nile dam talks in DRC” – below is their description.
Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt have resumed talks mediated by the African Union to resolve a dispute about Ethiopia’s dam on the Blue Nile.
Past negotiations have failed to reach an agreement and Ethiopia has announced it will start its second filling of the dam, with or without a deal.
Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan sent us this report from neighbouring Sudan – where she says – some are worried that a deal could lead to water shortages.
