Statement by the Press Secretary on Negotiations Between Egypt, Ethiopia, and Sudan
October 03, 2019
The United States supports Egypt, Ethiopia, and Sudan's ongoing negotiations to reach a cooperative, sustainable, and mutually beneficial agreement on filling and operating the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. All Nile Valley countries have a right to economic development and prosperity. The Administration calls on all sides to put forth good faith efforts to reach an agreement that preserves those rights, while simultaneously respecting each other's Nile water equities.
