New Swedish Aid to Palestine

Published fredag 29 juni 2007 kl 12.51

Sweden is to provide 2.9 million US dollars in financial aid to the cash-strapped Palestinian public sector, to help pay wages in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The European Union, of which Sweden is a member, is the biggest aid donor to the Palestinians, but it stopped sending funds to their government after Hamas swept to power early last year, as the EU considers Hamas a terrorist organisation.

Sweden said its aid would be channeled through the PLO’s Mirror Single Treasury Account, an account opened by the new Western-backed independent Prime Minister Salam Fayyad when he was finance minister, and which the EU continues to use because he is not a member of Hamas.

Hamas is no longer part of the Palestinian government.
