The UK has promised new funds to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to give vital assistance to Palestinian refugees, the UK’s Minister for the Middle East, James Cleverly, stated today.
UK support will encourage the Agency to continue delivering on its UN mandate to support and protect Palestinian refugees.
The UK has consistently been one of UNRWA’s top contributors, and its support in the last year has enabled UNRWA to provide education for more than half a million children and helped over 3.5 million Palestinians access health services.
The UK continues to promote a negotiated settlement leading to a safe and secure Israel living alongside a viable and sovereign Palestinian state; based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, Jerusalem as the shared capital of both states, and a just, fair and realistic settlement for refugees.
Until that happens, the UK remains firmly committed to supporting UNRWA and Palestinian refugees across the region.
