Jerusalem - Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said the UAE's aid to Palestine have surpassed the pledges it announced during the 2007 donors' conference in Paris.

Fayyad's comments came in a statement commenting on a recent report by Reuters on Arab countries' aid to the Palestinian National Authority (PNA).

"The report gives a totally wrong impression. The UAE's total aid to the Palestinian Authority has reached US$310 million, which is bigger than the US$300 million which it pledged during the donors' conference in Paris in 2007," Fayyad said.

"The said funds were committed not only to the PNA's budget, but also to development projects and relief aid over 3 years (2008-2010)," he added.

"This reflects the UAE's keen interest, not only in meeting its financial pledges to PA, but also in prioritizing and paying them according to the challenges PA and the Palestinian people are facing." "This generous support from the UAE, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, is not something new. The UAE has been offering unlimited support to Palestinians.

In 2007, the UAE paid a total of US$110 in funds to support the PNA's budget. The UAE also paid all the pledges it announced since the Arab Summit in Beirut in 2002, according to Fayyad.

The Palestinian Prime Minister described PNA's financial situation as "very difficult", but expressed hopes that all Arab countries would provide the support needed to overcome the current crisis. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
