The US President Donald trump has questioned the continuation of American financial assistance to the Palestinian authority.
«We pay to the Palestinians hundreds of millions of dollars a year and receive in return the gratitude and respect,» wrote trump on Tuesday, January 2, in his blog on the social network Twitter.
According to the President of the United States, the Palestinians do not even want to negotiate a peace Treaty with Israel. «Why do we have to pay them in the future such huge sums?» he writes.
Earlier in the day, U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley said that Donald trump does not intend to transfer money to the middle East the UN Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) as long as the Palestinian leaders back to the negotiating table.
