Afghan Government Donates $1 Million To UN Palestinian Aid Agency

The government of Afghanistan has contributed $1 million to the main United Nations agency that supports Palestinian refugees.

In a ceremony in Istanbul on March 3, Abdul Rahim Sayed Jan, Afghanistan’s ambassador to Turkey, handed the donation to Pierre Kraehenbuehl, commissioner of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

Turkey’s foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, praised Kabul for the donation and said that despite the hardships suffered by the Afghan people, their country has shown “the most beautiful example of international brotherhood with its noble act.”

The United States in August 2018 announced it will cut all funding for the UN agency.
