Palestinians demand resumption in funding

FT.com / World / Middle East & Africa - Palestinians demand resumption in funding: "Appearing before members of the European parliament, Mr Abbas also urged European governments to give the new government led by Hamas “the chance to adapt to the basic requirements of the international community” rather than cut off aid.

He said that the European Union's decision to freeze aid following Hamas' electoral victory in January risked destroying the Palestinian administrative and institutional structures that “it played a leading role in creating in the first place”."
