WASHINGTON, US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he “just had a meeting with top representatives from Egypt, Ethiopia, and Sudan “to help solve their long running dispute on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.” The dam, “one of the largest in the world,” is “currently being built” on the Blue Nile River in Ethiopia, according to a tweet by Trump.

The talks with representatives of the three countries went very well, he added.

Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan had accepted a US invitation for talks on the foreign ministers’ level in Washington on the controversial dam in the presence of representatives of US and the World Bank; no official statement was issued from the talks so far.
