Statement by United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process,
Nickolay Mladenov, on the reactivation of the Israeli - Palestinian Joint Water Committee
Jerusalem, 16 January 2017
This, along with previous joint agreements on electricity, water, mail and 3G cellular coverage, is in line with the Middle East Quartet’s recommendations.
If fully implemented, this agreement would be an important step towards preserving the two-state solution. I encourage further cooperation between the two sides which is critical to the viability of a future Palestinian state.”
