Brussels, 23 Rabi’ul Akhir 1436/13 February 2015 (MINA) – High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini Wednesday called on Israel to resume the transfer of Palestinian Authority revenues in light of the PA critical financial situation.
In the immediate term it is absolutely vital to address the critical financial situation of the Palestinian Authority, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
In this regard, Israel should resume the transfer of Palestinian Authority revenues in line with its obligations, Mogherini said in a statement issued following her meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas.
She said that the meeting was also an opportunity to follow-up on the issues discussed during her visit to the region in early November which was her first trip outside Europe after taking up office.
Mogherini has met Abbas Wednesday after his arrival to Brussels on a two-day visit.
Israel has earlier halted transfers of the tax revenues it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority in retaliation for its move to join the international criminal court in The Hague. (T/P011/P3)
