February 20th 2018 

 

President Abbas’ address to the Security Council reaffirmed Palestine's commitment to international law, UN resolutions and the two-state solution on the 1967 border. This is a historical opportunity for the international community to support the achievement of a just and lasting peace and to put an end to 51 years of Israel's occupation of Palestinian land and lives. It is a reminder to the Security Council of the need to uphold to their mandate of supporting peace and security after decades of strengthening Israel’s culture of impunity, just as it is a message to each member state of the United Nations to uphold their responsibilities.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Calls on the United Nations to Combat Turning UNRWA to a Tool for Nationalizing Refugees
Thursday, 18 January 2018 15:27

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemns the US decision to freeze $ 65 million of US aid funds to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) under the pretext of the existence of what it called "the need for a deep review of UNRWAs works and funds".
