The Ministry of Water and Irrigation said that there have been no official notifications from the World Bank (WB) regarding the Red-Dead Water Conveyance project, and that the ministry has not contacted the bank either.

The Amman-Aqaba Water Desalination and Conveyance National Project (AAWDC), which was launched in February 2020, will move forward unaffected, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Water and Irrigation Omar Salameh told The Jordan Times on Sunday.

“The AAWDC has nothing to do with the Red-Dead Water Conveyance Project and the ministry continues to put forth massive efforts in implementing it,” Salameh said.
