Sudanese and Egyptian diplomatic sources and journalists said that the participants in the round of negotiations on the Renaissance Dam, which has been taking place since last Saturday in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, agreed to extend the meetings to another day.

This comes in the wake of disagreements over the drafting of the final joint statement between the three countries, Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia.

The sources who spoke to the BBC added that the extension decision came because “Egypt and Sudan adhered to the call to expand the mediation to include the United States, the United Nations and the European Union, while Ethiopia adhered to the mediation of the African Union only.”

The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, said earlier that this tour is a final opportunity that the three countries must seize in order to reach an agreement on filling and operating the Renaissance Dam during the coming months and before the next flood season. The parties, it would be possible to reach a solution to the crisis.
