The Spanish foreign ministry has condemned the US decision to stop paying additional funding to UNRWA, warning of dangerous repercussions in the region, Safa news agency reported yesterday.

In a statement, Spain rejected the US claim that UNRWA was plagued with corruption and was “irredeemably flawed”.

The Spanish foreign ministry said in a statement:

“For 60 years, UNRWA has been working loyally and contributing to the urgent support and social assistance for Palestinian refugees.”

The statement added:

“The critical financial situation of UNRWA caused by the decision taken by the administration of [US President Donald] Trump seriously threatens the continuity of health, education, and food programmes, which directly benefit Palestinian refugees in the Middle East.”
