President Isaac Herzog sits down with Jordanian King Abdullah on the sidelines of the COP27 UN climate conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

According to Herzog’s office, the two leaders discussed trilateral cooperation between Israel, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates on energy and water issues, as well as an initiative to clean portions of the Jordan River.

Last year, Israel, Jordan and the UAE signed a major deal between the three nations to see a solar power plant built in Jordan by Emirati businesses to harness energy for Israel.

Herzog and Abdullah also discussed advancing bilateral relations in regards to regional concerns, the president’s office says.
