Canada to continue aid to Palestinians

Canada will continue to provide millions of dollars in humanitarian aid to the Palestinians despite saying last week it would assess its whole relationship with the Palestinian Authority after the UN General Assembly voted to recognize the Palestinians as a non-member observer state

 

Rick Roth, a spokesman for the foreign minister, says Canada's current five-year, $300-million commitment in funding for security and humanitarian aid is important and will remain. (AP)
