Under the peace agreement concluded in 1994, the two Middle Eastern nations have agreed on allocations of water from the Jordan and Yarmouk rivers, as well as on the mutual assistance to help cope with the water shortages by developing existing and new water resources. © Photo : Yuri Raysper Israel Using Red Sea-Dead Sea Water Project With Jordan to Keep Daesh, Iran Out of Region - Journo Earlier in April, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported that Netanyahu had delayed the response in light of recent diplomatic tensions between the countries, particularly connected to the cancellation of his visit to the UAE as Jordan withheld permission for the prime minister's flight over its territory back in mid-March.

That was the message from the mayor and city officials Wednesday to those suffering from frozen water pipes that have kept them waiting in their homes for city crews in a fog of misinformation for as long as 10 days. Hours after the Star reported on the plight of hundreds of Toronto residents who have been without water in the cold snap since Valentine’s Day, Mayor John Tory convened a meeting with Toronto Water general manager Lou Di Gironimo and city manager Joe Pennachetti, after which they announced the immediate creation of a “special SWAT team” to help coordinate city responses and communication with residents. “You performed a valuable public service today,” Mayor John Tory said in an interview in reference to the Star ’s reporting. “What it caused me to do today is have a meeting, my first meeting of the day, with … [Read more...] about Toronto sets up SWAT team to deal with water woes after Star story.

The US and the EU called on Japan to ensure that the procedure is in line with all safety standards. Tokyo, in turn, attempted to allay concerns, insisting there would be no negative impact on the environment or human health. "To ensure safety, the concentration of tritium in water at the time of its discharge into the ocean will be set at one fortieth of the national standard and one seventh of the WHO standard for drinking water.

The official also recalled that China, South Korea and Taiwan had … [Read more...] about Tokyo Assures Safety of Treated Fukushima Water to Be Dumped Into Ocean Amid Concerns
