U.S. Aid to Palestinians Through UN Cut by Half to $60 Million

U.S. Aid to Palestinians Through UN Cut by Half to $60 Million

January 16, 2018, 12:59 PM EST

The U.S. has told the United Nations agency that aids Palestinians that it’s cutting its contribution by more than half, to $60 million, while demanding a “fundamental reexamination” of the social-service agency’s mission and funding.

“It is time other countries, some of them quite wealthy, step in and do their part to advance regional security and stability,” the State Department said in a statement Tuesday, saying the money is enough to keep the agency from running out of funds while the remaining $65 million is withheld “for future consideration.”
