Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority were expected on Monday to sign an agreement on a Red Sea-Dead Sea pipeline project.

Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom was due to attend the signing ceremony at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC, Israel Radio reported.

Following the signing of the trilateral plan, an international tender will be published to establish a 180-kilometer pipeline that will transport water from a desalination plan in the Gulf of Aqaba to the Dead Sea.
