In a related note, in a message to a meeting in Cyprus on the Middle East organized by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, the Secretary-General said the Middle East peace process needs our support more than ever. The message was delivered by Karen Koning AbuZayd, the Deputy Commissioner General of the UNRWA.
The dire financial situation of UNRWA was highlighted in his message to the conference. He called on “donors to continue to assist UNRWA and contribute generously to its budget, especially now, when the refugee camps have become targets of military operations.”
