AMMAN, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Ministry of Water and Irrigation revealed on Tuesday a declaration of intent signed by the governments of Jordan, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel on Monday.

The document requires negotiating the feasibility of the establishment of a renewable energy project in Jordan to be implemented by a UAE company, in addition to a water desalination project to supply Jordan with 200 million cubic meters of water from the Mediterranean, said the Jordan's ministry in a statement.

The ministry highlighted that the document is merely a declaration of intent, as the signatories are not subject to any legal obligations or legal rights under international laws.
