BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — The United Kingdom declared its continued commitment of support to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).The British Minister for the Middle East, Alistair Burt, released a statement saying “UNRWA is a necessary humanitarian and stabilizing force in the region, providing vital services to millions of Palestinian refugees every day.

“The statement came after the United States Trump administration announced the decision to officially end all funding to UNRWA, following seven decades of US funding making up a third of the agency’s budget.

Burt concluded, “the UK remains a firmly committed supporter of UNRWA, and Palestinian refugees across the Middle East, and we will do everything we can to maintain continuity of essential services at this time.”
