Israel's regional cooperation minister said Israel is ready to move ahead with a multibillion dollar project with Jordan to pipe water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, an idea that's been on the drawing board for years.The brine byproduct will be piped 200 kilometers north to the Dead Sea, a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west, whose severe shrinkage has created a slew of environmental problems.Israel sees the collaboration as a way to improve ties with Jordan, which have remained frosty despite their 1994 peace agreement.
