UNRWA asks urgent political and financial support to Palestinian

The Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Pierre Krähenbühl, has urgently called on Arab states for they’re continued financial and political support to Palestine refugees and to the work and role of the Agency.

UNRWA Commissioner-General yesterday held meetings with the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States Ahmad Aboul Gheit and with the foreign ministers of Egypt, the State of Palestine, Iraq and Qatar, as well as with the Deputy Foreign Minister of Kuwait in Cairo.

Krähenbühl reiterated his and the Agency’s gratitude to members of the League of Arab States for their outstanding support in 2018; the most financially challenging year since UNRWA was created in 1949. He also reminded them that the crisis is neither resolved nor was it simply financial in nature.
