water minister, US Congressional aides discuss water sector challenges

Amman, Oct. 11 (Petra)-- Minister of Water and Irrigation Hazim Al Nasser, on Wednesday, discussed with a delegation of US Congressional aides the water situation in the Kingdom and major challenges facing this key sector due to conflicts in the Middle East region.

Al Nasser voiced the government's appreciation of the support provided by donor countries, mainly the United States, to Jordan that helps it in addressing water challenges resulting from the Syrian refugee crisis.

The minister briefed the delegation on Jordan's plan in the water sector until 2020, by upgrading the water services through the safe supply of water in sufficient quantity and quality to citizens.

The U.S. delegation commended Jordan's role in shouldering burdens imposed on its economy by Syrian refugees, stressing the U.S. desire to boost ties with the Kingdom in various fields, namely, the water-management sector.
