Syria condemns stance of a number of countries that suspended funding to UNRWA

Damascus, SANA- Syria condemned the decision of some countries, on top the US, to suspend funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

“The decision is a blatant bias to the incitement campaign promoted by the Israeli occupation and implementation of its plans to liquidate the agency and end the services it provides to the Palestinian people,” Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The ministry noted that the actions of these countries constitute a blatant aggression against human values amounting to collective punishment and reflect their abandonment of assuming the collective responsibility approved by the UN in providing support to the Palestinian refugees until a just solution to their cause is reached.

Syria calls on these countries to reverse the funding suspension decision due to the serious repercussions it will have on the humanitarian situation of the Palestinian people, the ministry concluded.
