Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt to set up research team on controversial dam

"One step forward to Ethiopia", the country's foreign affairs spokesman, Meles Alem, told The Associated Press.

The meeting, which ended Wednesday dawn, ended on a "positive note", said Ethiopia's Minister of Energy, Irrigation and Electricity, Sileshi Bekele.

The Nigerian billionaire is expected in the country this Thursday (May 17) for an emergency meeting with the factory's management.

Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt agreed to conduct an independent study in order to dispel worries on water flow impact by the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) now being built on the Nile. 15 countries will make up the study group, with meeting locations to be rotated between the the three founding countries, and after three months of meetings the results of the group negotiations will be presented to the countries' water ministers.

Progress was made in talks held yesterday in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, to discuss the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), a $4 billion infrastructure project being undertaken by Ethiopia.

Woman killed by fallen tree in Town of Newburgh was Ulster resident
A woman in Chestnut Ridge has died after a tree dropped onto her vehicle while she was driving in Tuesday's storm, police said. The National Weather Service said the strong thunderstorms created a small weather-generated tsunami off the New Jersey coast.

Accordingly, a team of five individuals from each country will be established to study the filling and operating of the dam, whose construction by Ethiopia is reported to be in the final stages.

Egypt's President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi announced that the negotiations on the control of water resources of the Nile, which was fought with the Sudan and Ethiopia failed to achieve a breakthrough.

Global agreements signed in 1929 and 1959, Egypt is guaranteed to 87% of the Nile waters.

Both Egypt and Sudan, however, have now expressed their support for the construction, which aims to produce 6000 megawatts of hydroelectric power - equal to six nuclear-powered plants.
