The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, represented by the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD) transferred Saudi Arabia’s partial contribution worth of $80 million to support the Palestinian Authority’s budget.
Saudi Ambassador to Egypt Osama bin Ahmed Nuqali, said in a statement on Thursday that the SDF has transferred $80 million to the account of the Palestinian Ministry of Finance, representing the monthly contribution of the Kingdom to support the Palestinian Authority for the months of April, May, June and July 2018, at a rate of $20 million per month.
Ambassador Nuqali stressed that Saudi Arabia will always support the Palestinian cause at all political, economic and humanitarian levels.
On Tuesday, Saudi Ambassador to the United Nations Abdallah al-Mouallimi refuted US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley’s criticism of Arab countries for not doing enough to help Palestinians.
Al-Mouallimi responded to these claims during a monthly meeting of the UN Security Council on the Middle East.
Saudi Arabia has over the past two decades provided “$6 billion to the Palestinians in humanitarian assistance, development aid and relief,” a-Mouallimi responded.
The Saudi Ambassador added that “the value of assistance provided to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) was $1 billion for the same period.”
