An Egyptian-Sudanese-Ethiopian summit kicked off Sunday with the presence of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir and Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmed Ali at the latter's headquarters in Addis Ababa.

The tripartite summit will discuss the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam issue and cooperation between the three countries. 

Also on the agenda are the challenges facing the African continent as Egypt assumes the presidency of the African Union for the first time since its establishment in 2002.

Egypt has maintained that its main concern over the construction of the Renaissance Dam is its potential negative impact on the country's water share.

The leaders of Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia are holding the summit on the sidelines of the 32nd African Union Summit.
