Sudan: Sudan Supports GERD for Economic Benefits Not Political Reasons

[Ethiopia Government]Sudan's Ambassador to Ethiopia, Ambassador Abdel Rahman Sir-el-katim, said on Monday (November 24) that Sudan remains committed to support the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) "because we believe that this dam will benefit Sudan together with Ethiopia and Egypt."
