"The delegation that arrived at 06:00 this morning (Wednesday) spent all of last night in meetings and discussions over this matter, and I can say that progress was made in the negotiations with our brothers in Sudan and in Ethiopia", Sisi said on a live youth conference on state TV.

In addition, Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia will jointly establish the "National Independent Scientific Research Study Group", which aims to "discuss means of enhancing the levels of understanding and cooperation among the three countries with regard to the GERD". The negotiations lasted nearly two days - nearly without a break. They also confirmed that leaders from the three nations will meet every six months for consultations. More high-level talks are set for July 3 in Cairo.

The Blue Nile, which has its source in Ethiopia, joins the White Nile in Khartoum to form the Nile that crosses Sudan and Egypt before flowing into the Mediterranean. Ethiopia maintains that the dam's construction will not reduce Egypt's share of the water and that it will help Ethiopia's development, pointing out that 60 million of its citizens don't have access to electricity.

Meles Alem, spokesman of the Ethiopian Foreign Affairs Ministry, described the agreement as "a breakthrough" in the drawn-out talks between the three countries.

The mega-dam is now more than 63 percent complete. The reason for these differences was the construction in Ethiopia of the biggest hydraulic structure on the African continent - the Dam of the Renaissance. Primarily, this will address the "equitable and reasonable utilization of shared water resources while taking all appropriate measures to prevent the causing of significant harm".
