United Kingdom foreign minister: Jerusalem should be 'shared capital'

United Kingdom foreign minister: Jerusalem should be 'shared capital'”

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said on Monday that its mandate comes only from the UN General Assembly, which created it in1950 following the Palestinians' dispersion from their homeland with Israel's creation by a UN resolution in 1947, WAFA reported.

A State Department official said no decision on funding to the agency had been made.

"We pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect", Trump tweeted on January 2.

"We want to see a negotiated settlement between the Israelis and Palestinians; we believe that should be based on a two-state solution that should be a sovereign and viable Palestinian state but also a secure and safe Israel", May had told lawmakers at the House of Commons.

Erekat said the PLO Central Council meeting scheduled for Sunday in Ramallah would discuss defining the Palestinian relationship with Israel in all areas, as well as how to confront and annul the US decision on Jerusalem.

Trump's threat against UNRWA funding was popular in Israel, even though government security officials warned that it could fuel violence and strengthen radical Palestinian forces in the West Bank, said Jonathan Rynhold, director of Bar Ilan University's Argov Center for the Study of Israel and the Jewish People.

Trump defied overwhelming global opposition by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but insisted that the highly controversial move would not derail his own administration's bid to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "It appreciates the immediate symbolism of the USA taking Israel's side versus the Palestinians".

He added that UNRWA, which began operations on 1 May 1950, was funded by contributions from United Nations member states and whose services encompass education, healthcare, social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, microfinance and emergency assistance, and it has a mandate to continue with its mission until there is a just and lasting solution to the Palestine refugees issue.

"With the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?".
