The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is under construction in Ethiopia. Businesses hope it will help to solve the country's poor electricity supply.
The three countries have agreed the filling of the Nile dam should start in the wet season and proceed in stages. But they have delayed making a final agreement until later in January.
The three African nations have said they will continue trying to resolve a conflict over plans for a massive Ethiopian-run dam along the Nile river. The project has raised concerns about shortages of drinking water.
Egypt has accused Ethiopia of being "unfair" in talks over a massive dam project. The impasse has occurred due to technical aspects related to the filling and operating of the multi-billion dollar project.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has accepted the task, saying that a solution was surely possible. Egyptian officials have occasionally threatened military action against the dam.
