Bennett’s response to Al-Safadi after he announced the suspension of talks on a hydropower deal provoked a backlash


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CNN) — Former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s response to Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safati and his comments on energy-water deal negotiations between Jordan and Israel sparked widespread interaction among activists on social media platforms.

Bennett wrote in a blog post on his page on the X site (formerly Twitter): “The government I lead has promoted this agreement (energy for water), and I can say clearly: Israel has enough energy resources to produce electricity; Jordan does not have enough water for its people.

He continued: “That is why we, as good neighbors, took the initiative to desalinate the sea water and push the desalinated water into the Jordan River so that Jordan can pump more water and provide water to its people. We did this. Help our neighbors who are starving for water, Jordan’s leaders. If desired, “Jordanians are thirsty, it is their right.”

“Israel is killing people, killing innocents,” Al-Safadi told CNN anchor Becky Anderson in an interview with CNN anchor Peggy Anderson, who said talks with Israel on a hydropower deal had been halted in light of Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip. , and destroying 61% of medical infrastructure.” in Gaza”.

Al-Safadi continued: “We have been discussing with the Israelis for some time, the so-called Prosperity Agreement, whereby we will provide them with solar energy and in return they will provide us with water. The discussions have now stopped . . . and the current circumstances do not allow any kind of interaction with the Israelis.” Therefore, the peace treaty between the two countries will become a “document gathering dust”.
