(MENAFN) Calling on the parliaments around the world to urge their governments to support the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), Arab Parliament Speaker, Mashaal bin Fahm Al-Salami also said that this would allow the agency to continue its work in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolution 302.
Al-Salami stated in a statement that he had sent letters to a number of world parliaments that have always supported UNRWA such as: the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, Denmark and Norway.
Praising in his letters the countries support to UNRWA, Al-Salami emphasized that the Arab Parliament rejects attempts to politicize the humanitarian role played by UNRWA after the US froze part of its contribution to the agency's budget.
Al-Salami highlighted that UNRWA work should only end after the implementation of UN General Assembly Resolution 194, which demanded the return of the Palestinian refugees and compensation for those who have been displaced from their homes.
Al-Salami also thanked the Arab countries, which are among the top 20 countries that support UNRWA.
