Israel, Jordan, PA sign historic Red Sea-Dead Sea canal deal

Published: 12.09.13, 08:10 / Israel News

In a ceremony held in the Washington headquarters of the World Bank on Monday, Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority will sign an agreement green-lighting the construction of Red Sea-Dead Sea pipeline.

 

The Red Sea–Dead Sea Conduit also known as the Two Seas Canal will carry some 100 metric cubes of water north annually, thus hopefully slowing down the process Dead Sea's desiccation. As part of the cooperation, a joint water purification plant will be formed and Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians will share the water. (Nahum Barnea)
