RAMALLAH, April 7 (KUNA) -- The Palestinian Presidency has welcomed statements by US President Joe Biden expressing his commitment to the two-state solution as a basis for resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
It also welcomed statements by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to resume providing economic, development and humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people, especially providing financial support to United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, UNRWA, according to a statement aired by the Palestinian news agency (WAFA) on Wednesday.
It noted the aid package directed to UNRWA will contribute to providing education and health to hundreds of thousands of students and millions of people who live in refugee camps in Palestine and neighboring countries, and the other economic and development aid to the Gaza Strip and the West Bank through the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
The US aid will also contribute to supporting the infrastructure and basic services necessary to face the difficult conditions the Palestinian people live through under occupation and due to the Corona pandemic, reads the statement.
The Palestinian Presidency renewed its commitment to the two-state solution based on the foundations of the international legitimacy, and its willingness to respond to any international efforts to reach this goal. (end) nq.ibi
