CAIRO, March 20 (MENA) – Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou on Friday received a message from President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD)'s file.
Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, who is on his last African leg, delivered the message during his meeting with Issoufou on the latest developments related to the Ethiopian dam's file, as well as bilateral ties and a host of issues of mutual interest, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Hafez said.
