Asked if he had anything further on EU money for the Palestinian Authority, the PMOS replied that discussions were continuing on this issue, that it was a complex issue, in that it was a question of multiple elements of a budget, and that there were multiple uses for that money, but that he welcomed President Abbas’s comments that the new Governments should abide by agreements signed by the Palestinian Authority, including the Oslo Peace Agreement. He further stated that this was a matter that the EU would continue to discuss.

Put that this was not going to be easily resolved, the PMOS referred to the Foreign Secretary’s comments on the issue: the World Bank has recommended that full payment with the Palestinian Authority resume. He added that this was the Government’s position but that it remained to be seen whether the EU adopted that position.
