Israel considering buying water from Turkey

(JERUSALEM POST) — Israel has recently begun talks with Turkey on the possibility of purchasing water from it, as part of the Water Authority’s attempts to ensure sufficient reserves in the face of dwindling local levels.

The Foreign Ministry, which is currently conducting the negotiations, had held talks with Ankara on the subject in 2000-2006, but the plans to import water from Turkey were eventually dropped because of high costs, as well as technical issues.
