US threatens to stop UNRWA funding to press PA

The US administration has threatened to stop funding the UNRWA unless the Palestinian Authority (PA) sits again with Israel at the negotiating table.

“He [Trump] does not want to give any additional funding until the Palestinians agree to come back to the negotiation table, and what we saw with the resolution was not helpful to the situation,” US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley told a news conference on Tuesday.

“We are trying to move for a peace process, but if that does not happen, the president is not going to continue to fund that situation,” she added.

The PA leadership recently declared that the current US administration proved itself unfit to be an honest mediator in the peace process after it gave itself the right to recognize Occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
