Mahadin, who ended a visit to Turkey yesterday, during which he checked Manaogat projects, said he discussed with the Turkish side all matters concerning this subject, except the probable price of this water.
He added that he does not think that the matter of price will be the main issue, emphasizing the basic role of the issue of water in achieving peace and regional cooperation in the area.
