The sudan agency demanded the second filling of the dam to be conducted with legal consent.”

In case the second filling is conducted without reaching a legal deal, Sudan has legal teams, supported with international law offices, that will file lawsuits against the Italian implementing company and the Ethiopian government,” Sudan Irrigation and Water Resources Minister Yasir Abbas tweeted.

“The lawsuit is based on the fact that the environmental and social impacts and risks of the GERD have not been studied,” he said.
