Israel working on Gaza desalination plan – Lieberman

Israel’s foreign affairs minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said on 18 July 2010 that Israel was working on a plan to build desalination plants and water purification infrastructure, as well as power stations, in the Gaza Strip.

Following his meeting with EU representative Catherine Ashton, Lieberman said, “These projects can resolve a real problem of drinking water and electricity and improve the situation.” His government was looking for “serious partners” to improve the situation in Gaza, he said.
