Iran slams US move to cut financial aid to UNRWA

Tehran, Sept 4, IRNA – Iran as the rotating president of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC, PUOICM) on Tuesday condemned the US move to cut financial aid to UNRWA.

The US move to cut aid to the United Nations Relief Works and Agency (UNRWA) is a clear violation of the UN General Assembly resolution 302 (IV), Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani who is also head of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC, PUOICM) said in a statement.

He urged all parliaments of the OIC member-states to take strong decision in condemning the US move.

Larijani described the US move against the Palestinian refugees as shameful and underlined that as the head of PUOICM will demand all international and regional communities to support UNRWA financially.
