Sudanese Irrigation Minister, Yasser Abbas, has threatened that his country could take Ethiopia to The International Court of Justice to resolve their differences if the latter goes ahead with plans to fill the mega-dam on the Blue Nile without first reaching a deal with Sudan and Egypt.
In a series of Twitter posts on Friday, Abbas also mentioned that Ethiopia had rejected an invitation for a three-way summit to discuss stalled negotiations over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).
He stated further that the African Union did not perform its leadership role but were only observers. Yasser, added that, nine months have been wasted in futile negotiations, and Sudan will not accept to waste any more time.
He concluded the series of tweets by saying wars between the three countries as a result of the GERD issue is not expected.
