Sudan hoping for shift in Ethiopian position on Nile Dam talks, says Nureldin Satti, Sudan’s Ambassador to the United States
00:00 / 28:06
Nureldin Satti, Sudan’s Ambassador to the United States, says that the "stumbling block" in the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) negotiations so far has been Ethiopia’s unwillingness to engage in talks leading to a binding agreement; that, with an agreement, the GERD can be a symbol of integration rather than a cause of conflict; that Sudan does not occupy Ethiopian territory; that US-Sudan ties have indeed entered a "new chapter"; the prospects for ties with Israel; and the positive role of Sudan’s youth in bringing about change and reform.
