CAIRO: The Nile Tripartite Committee (NTC) for Ethiopia’s Renaissance Dam is set to resume talks in Khartoum Nov. 29-30, Irrigation Minister Hossam Moghazy told Youm7 Saturday.

Representatives from the French BRL group and Dutch Deltares consultancy firm are to be present during the meetings, said Moghazy. The meeting was scheduled for Oct. 23-23 but has been cancelled.

The Dutch firm Deltares withdrew from a bid to conduct the dam studies due to divergences of roles with the French BRL group and the competence of each firm in preparing the report on the impact of the dam.

Egypt fears the dame, which will be Africa’s largest hydroelectric power plant, will negatively affect its share of Nile water.
