National Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer and Jordan's Minister of Water and Irrigation Eng. Mohamad Zafer al Alem agreed to submit a joint request to the World Bank to begin a feasibility survey on the Peace Conduit project to link the Dead and Red Seas within the month. The meeting between the two ministers in Jordan comes days after reports that the Jordanians told the European Investment Bank that they are concerned that a rail project to link Irbid with Haifa would cause losses to Jordan's port city, Aqaba. The Peace Conduit would replenish the shrinking Dead Sea with salt water and provide hydro-electric power. A Jordanian delegation will come to visit Israeli water purification and desalination facilities, while a joint water commission continues talks ahead of a reciprocal visit by Al Alem in Israel, the ministers agreed.
