December 9, 2012 17:56

Canada and Israel have agreed to work together going forward to promote a United Nations resolution that would double the percentage of wastewater reused across the world, the Energy and Water Ministry said on Sunday.

The agreement is a result of a meeting on Sunday between Israeli Energy and Water Minister Uzi Landau and Canadian Environment Minister Peter Kent, in Landau’s Jerusalem office. During their meeting, the ministers discussed a wide array of topics, including political, economic and environmental issues, according to the ministry. Landau particularly thanked his colleague for Canada’s vote against the Palestinian bid for UN non-member observer status, stressing that that negotiations can only be achieved without preconditions and without unilateral bids.
