Water Talks
End In Discord

Geneva (JTA) — An interna-
tional conference on Middle
East water resources con-
vened here last week and
ended in discord, with the
Palestinians saying they
would not participate in ad-
ditional sessions for the next
five months.
The Palestinians were ap-
parently upset that Israel
had rejected their request
that a special commission be
set up to investigate
disputed water rights in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
"The Israelis refused all
compromise," Palestinian
spokesman Abu Ala was
quoted as saying at a news
conference here.
"As long as we Palestin-
ians are not treated as a full
partner, the talks cannot
succeed," said Riad al-
Khourday, the head of the
Palestinian delegation.
The conference that met
here is one of five
multilateral working groups
set up during the October
1991 Middle East peace con-
ference in Madrid to deal
with various regional issues.
The talks were attended by
numerous countries from
both the region and beyond.
Delegations from the re-
gion included Algeria,
Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Jor-
dan, Kuwait, Mauritania,
Morocco, Oman, Qatar,
Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, the
Arab Emirates and Yemen.
But Syria and Lebanon
again boycotted the talks.
An additional 29 nations
and international organiza-
tions participated in the
talks.
Gen. Freddy Zach, a mem-
ber of the Israeli delegation,
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that for the first
time a delegation of the
United Nations and the
World Bank proposed a pro-
ject involving water wells in
Jordan.
The European Community
discussed another water pro-
ject for the Gaza Strip. The
World Bank submitted a pro-
ject for rain- collection, and
the Canadian delegation
presented projects affecting
the whole region.
In a statement given to
reporters, the Palestinians
proposed a national water
carrier linking the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
"We require Palestinian
national institutional
building, especially a central
Palestinian water resources
authority that would enable
us to fully manage our na-
tional water resources."
