The United Nations welcomed on Wednesday a U.S. plan to restart funding for the U.N. agency supporting Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) and hopes other countries "will now follow suit," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
The Biden administration told Congress on Wednesday it plans to restart aid to the Palestinians, including $150 million through the U.N. relief agency UNWRA, $75 million for economic support and $10 million for development assistance, a congressional source said.
