Brazil donates $14 million for Gaza reconstruction

Ramallah – Ma’an – Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva signed a decision granting $14 million for Gaza reconstruction efforts, Palestinian officials announced.

During a visit to Brazil, a Fatah delegation headed by Central Committee member Nabil Sha'ath met with da Silva, who applauded President da Silva's positions toward Palestine.

“The question of Palestine runs in the blood vessels of every Brazilian. I will continue to fight for a just peace leading to establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital,” the president was quoted as saying.

Sha'ath said in a statement that da Silva would be willing to join international efforts to support the Palestinian stance, and would willingly participate in the peace process.

The Fatah official applauded da Silva for his support to the PA and the Palestinian people and pushed the South American leader to help Palestinian refugees who fled Iraq to Brazil in 2003.

Da Silva responded positively to Sha’ath’s request to provide free accommodation and job opportunities for refugees, and asked his foreign minister to follow up with ministers of labor and housing and work out a fair solution.
