  • U.S. fails to make cost to United Nations company that helps Palestinians

"If the United States government proceeds with this bullying tactic, other governments should step in to fill the gap so that programs aren't forced to shut down".

Sweden, a big donor country that has recognized a Palestinian state, warned Tuesday that any USA decision to withdraw funds to the United Nations agency for Palestinians would be destabilizing for the Middle East.

Moscow attaches particular importance to the UNRWA's role and highly praises the agency's contribution to alleviating the suffering of Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.

"They don't even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel".

The Axios news website, citing three unnamed Western diplomats, said on Friday that the sum - a third of the annual United States donation to the UNRWA which was expected to be delivered on Monday - was frozen until the White House finishes its review of aid to the PA.

After the announcement, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said the United States had surrendered its role as a mediator of the peace talks, and refused to meet with USA officials about the peace process.

The meeting came as US officials have hinted that Washington might halt its assistance to UNRWA in response to a Palestinian firm stand rejecting a decision by US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Also on Thursday, Safadi telephoned his Malaysian counterpart Anifah Aman and acquainted him with the efforts exerted to face the repercussions of the USA decision recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Palestinians condemned the decision, stressing that the United States has no credibility as a Middle East peace broker.

On December 21, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution that calls on the USA to withdraw its controversial recognition of Quds as the Israeli capital.

Hamdallah said that the recent U.S. steps were undermining the two-state solution, calling on the countries of the world, particularly Norway, to recognize the Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
