CAIRO - 1 September 2018: The Arab League (AL) general secretariat condemns the US decision to stop funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), AL Assistant Secretary General for the Occupied Palestinian and Arab Lands Saeed Abu Ali said on Saturday.

In statements, Abu Ali stressed that the United States is not entitled to cancel UNRWA, which he said was established by UN General Assembly Resolution no. 302 of 1949.

The resolution stipulated that UNRWA should provide services in all fields to Palestinian refugees until their issue is resolved in all its aspects, he noted.

The official asserted that the US decision violates international law and the UN resolution that created UNRWA.
