      Shalom: PA Stopping Water, Gas Projects due to Politics

      The Quartet of Middle East Peace Broker Nations will set up teams to promote cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in matters of water, gas and other forms of energy

      The decision came after Minister Silvan Shalom, whose portfolios include regional cooperation, as well as energy and water, told Quartet envoy Tony Blair that the PA was stopping projects in these fields because of political conflicts and doesn't understand that they are in the Palestinian interest. The Likud lawmaker said it was important to promote economic matters that will help the PA at the end of the day.
