B: Issue’s Editorial:
The Council of Ministers discussed yesterday the consumption of water in the country. We have seen how wasteful use has depleted our underground reservoirs.
One of the solutions has been building dams and cisterns.This has helped, but it is not a final solution.
The final solution lies in the way we use water. The solution is with the citizens. The Cabinet has taken the first steps in the ultimate solution to this problem.
