UNRWA Spokesman Urges Regular Contributions by Arab States

UNRWA spokesman Sami Mashasha said an Arab League summit held last week makes part of underway efforts to boost regular fundraising for UNRWA so as to enable the agency to keep up its services for Palestine refugees.

Speaking with Sputnick news agency, Mashasha said the US suspended the $365 million it used to contribute in aid for UNRWA on an annual basis.

UNRWA is left with a deficit of $186 million, down from $365 million earlier this year, added Mashasha.

He said a meeting will be held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session under the auspices of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Japan, and the EU to urge more funds to the agency.

Addressing the international community and the Palestine refugee community UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl has vowed that the agency will uphold its vital services despite Washington’s simmering crackdowns and ad hominem campaigns waged over recent months.
