Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has stressed the need to reach a binding legal agreement on the filling and operation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).
Hamdok, in a meeting with chairman of the AU Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat, on Sunday said this would enable Sudan to go ahead with its development projects and avoid harms that could be caused due to lack of detailed information regarding the filling and operation of the dam.
The meeting also discussed the situation in Sudan, focusing on the country's transition to democracy.
Hamdok posted Mahamat on progress achieved so far in the files of peace and economic development.
The AU commissioner stressed support of the pan-African body for Sudan in its period of transition.
He also said the AU is closely following negotiations on the GERD and agreed that Sudan would provide the union with further information about the controversial dam.
