A senior Sudanese official said yesterday that Khartoum agrees with Ethiopia in rejecting Egypt’s threats to internationalise the dispute over the Renaissance Dam that Addis Ababa is building.

Secretary-General of the Sudanese Energy, Mining, Electricity and Regulation Authority, Tijjani Adam, said Khartoum completely rejects the internationalisation of the Renaissance Dam issue, stressing that internationalising the dispute will not benefit the countries concerned.

“The internationalisation of the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam dispute cannot stop the project, and will only complicate things more and delay the expected solutions,” the Ethiopian News Agency reported Adam as saying.

“I support the Ethiopians’ position, because I am Muslim, and in Islam you should always look for the interests of your neighbours, but also not forget yourself either.”

  1. All what I can say is ‘Hey el-Sisi !!! Hayeelike that? It is time to eat your crow! The air space in Sudan is closed on you and the Wahhabis were bluffing when they mumbled their support for you! There is a comfy chair is still waiting for you at the negotiating table.’
