And controversies took place between the foreign ministries of the two countries, where the Egyptian Foreign Ministry responded to the statement of its Sudanese counterpart regarding the Renaissance Dam.

Counselor Ahmed Hafez, spokesperson for the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, regretted what was stated in the statement issued by the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding Khartoum’s reservations to the Arab decision on the Renaissance Dam.

Hafez confirmed that Egypt had submitted to the League of Arab States the permanent delegate of Sudan the draft resolution since the beginning of March, and had received confirmation of receipt of the text.

He stated that the Egyptian Foreign Ministry was keen during the following days to continue to communicate with the Sudanese side to receive any comments, but Khartoum did not respond.

The official spokesman added that the Egyptian delegation had responded to Sudan’s request to delete its name from the draft resolution, but the subsequent amendments proposed by Sudan came to empty the text of its content and weaken the effect of the decision, noting that the decision issued by the Arab Ministerial Meeting included only solidarity with the rights Water Egypt and emphasizing the rules of international law and calling for the signing of the agreement prepared for the Renaissance Dam.
