Sudan says Ethiopia will not fill Nile dam without reaching deal

CAIRO, June 26 (Reuters) - Sudan, Ethiopia and Egypt agreed that Ethiopia will not start filling its giant Nile dam without reaching an agreement between them, Sudan’s state news agency said on Friday.

The Egyptian presidency also said in a statement that Ethiopia will not fill the dam unilaterally, after leaders from the three countries and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who chairs the African Union held an online summit.
