United Arab Emirates is keenly following up the rehabilitation of Palestinian refugees in the Nahr al-Barid refugee camp in Lebanon. Speaking at the international donor's conference for the reconstruction of Nahr al-Barid Refugee camp, currently being held in Vienna, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Anwar Mohammed Gargash said that UAE always took a strong, principled stand in supporting the legitimate political rights of the Palestinian people.

Gargash hailed the role of the Lebanese government in evolving a comprehensive project for protecting the rights and human dignity of the Palestinian refugees in the Nahr al-Barid Camp. With over 40,000 people living in the dilapidated homes, the Nahr al- Barid refugee camp is the largest in Lebanon. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and charities have for years been trying to achieve an improvement in the living conditions in the badly overcrowded camp.

Gargash said that the country's support to the reconstruction project is being seriously studied to implement it, in coordination with the Lebanese government.

During the last 14 years alone, UAE has provided over US$4.2bn in aid to Palestinian people; the minister noted. Emirates News Agency (WAM) has learnt that various countries have pledged US$122mn so far in aid for the reconstruction of Nahr Al-Barid refugee camp. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
