Egypt and Sudan are combining forces to sue the Italian Salini Impregilo (Currently known as Webuild) after establishing the main structures of the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.
The Sudanese Irrigation Minister Yasser Abbas asserted last month that his state will sue both the corporation and the Ethiopian government if Ethiopia conducted such a step.
He added that the case will focus on the ecological, environmental, and social impacts of establishing the dam.
Furthermore, Egypt backed the plan that’s why Egyptians in Italy protested in Rome against the corporation after winning the construction GERD contract.
Last month, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that the GERD crisis faces Ethiopian intransigence, explaining that Ethiopia has rejected some international mediations to solve the crisis.
Recently, Shoukry had made several African tours to a number of brotherly African countries, carrying messages from President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi to presidents and leaders of these countries, about the developments of the Renaissance Dam file and the Egyptian position in this regard.
