Japan's New Assistance of USD 62 million to the Palestinians

The Government of Japan has decided to extend USD 62 million approximately to the people of Palestine. This contribution is a part of Japan's support for ongoing peace negotiations between the two parties in order to realize a just, lasting and comprehensive peace in the future based on a "two-state solution". In this regard, Japan calls on the Palestinian side to keep on exerting its efforts positively to proceed with ongoing negotiations with Israel.

Japan's new contribution of USD 62.2 million consists of; (30.0 million) for financial support through the World Bank, (16.0 million) support for refugees through UNRWA, (12.6 million) support for infrastructure through UNDP and (3.6 million) through UNICEF.

Japan, as a responsible member of the international community, intends to continue supporting the peace process both politically and economically, including the promotion of the "Corridor for Peace and Prosperity" initiative and the "Conference on Cooperation among East Asian Countries for Palestinian Development (CEAPAD)".
