March 16, 2024 (EIRNS)—Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong announced yesterday that Australia will resume its funding of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. “The best available current advice from agencies and the Australian government lawyers is that UNRWA is not a terrorist organization,” Wong told reporters on March 15 in Adelaide where she announced the aid package, reported AP. “(We have) been working with a group of donor countries and with UNRWA on the shared objective of ensuring the integrity of UNRWA’s operations, rebuilding confidence, and so importantly, ensuring aid flows to Gazans in desperate need.”
