Jordan has asked Israel to increase its water allocation from Tiberias which is pumped to Jordan between May and October, Israel's Hadashot TV reported on Tuesday.
The station reported a senior Jordanian delegation visited Israel on Monday to request an additional allocation of water as stipulated in the peace agreement, due to the severe drought in Jordan.
According to Israeli media, the Jordanian delegation met with Israeli officials from the Joint Water Committee, which had not convened for more than a year.
In the wake of the meeting, the Jordanian officials visited Tiberias and saw the low water levels.
They also asked for Israeli permission to dig water wells in the Jordanian city of Raba, near the border with Israel.
