Foreign Minister Yair Lapid applauds a new deal between Israel and Jordan that will see the Jewish state double its water supply to the Hashemite kingdom.

“I congratulate Israeli Minister of Energy Karine Elharrar and Jordanian Minister of Water Mohammad al-Najjar on signing an important agreement to double the amount of water shared annually by Israel with Jordan,” says Lapid in a statement.

“This is what good neighbors do, in line with Israel’s policy of connections with other countries. It’s another step forward in the cooperation between Israel and Jordan in tackling our joint challenges.”
