      Water-Sharing Initiative Officially Signed in Washington


      Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority on Monday officially signed the "historic" water-sharing initiative at the World Bank in Washington, reports AFP.

      The project envisions a new desalination plant at Aqaba as the lynchpin of a sharing deal linking the Red and Dead Seas and the Kinneret and end-users in all three parties to the deal.
