Egypt is leading enormous efforts to resolve the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) issue, Founding President of Sudan's Environmental Initiative Organization for Sustainable Development (EnvI) Hanan El-Amin Muddathir said.
Egypt is also fighting for the rights of Sudan, which will be first affected by giant hydropower dam on the Blue Nile, Muddathir told MENA on the fringe of a news briefing held Sunday by Maat Foundation for Peace, Development and Human Rights, a founding member of the African "Nile for Peace" Initiative.
She called upon the Egyptian and Sudanese governments to unify their position on the dam issue, stressing that, "it's high time both parties took serious action to put the Ethiopian side in the picture about the threats and risks the dam poses for the peoples of Sudan and Egypt."
"I call upon the Egyptian and Sudanese governments to support each other in every way possible, as we are in the same boat," Muddathir stressed during the press conference.
She revealed that a number of Sudanese engineers, experts, dams and irrigation specialists, media professionals and activists will on Monday organize a rally before the Italian embassy in Khartoum to condemn an Italian company's involvement the controversial dam project.
