Sudan said Tuesday the Arab resolution on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam was drafted after full coordination with Egypt.

Sudan, Egypt, and Ethiopia agree on 90 percent of the points of contention over the Renaissance Dam, Sudanese Minister of State of Foreign Affairs Omar Qamar El-Din told an urgent meeting of the Arab League Council at the level of foreign ministers.

Sudan is ready to narrow the divergencies in views between Ethiopia and Egypt, he added.

Qamar El-Din urged Egypt and Ethiopia to continue their constructive negotiation and avoid escalation.

He affirmed Ethiopia's right to benefit from its water resources, and the right of Sudan and Egypt to maintain their water security.
