VoiceForeign Minister Sameh Shoukry told reporters that talks over the $5 billion Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam had stopped for more than a year before restarting in Cairo earlier in the day.
Egypt says no breakthrough with Ethiopia over Nile dam
The long-running dispute centers on the filling and operation of what will be Africa's largest hydroelectric dam.
Egypt fears the dam could reduce its share of the Nile River which serves as a lifeline for the country's 100 million people.
