RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The European Commission has announced additional financial support to the Palestinians for state-building, water-management and sanitation, state media reported Tuesday.

A €115-million package will offer education and health services for refugees and assistance to West Bank businesses, the Palestinian Authority's official news agency WAFA reported.

UNRWA is to receive €40 million of the funding, according to the report.

"This support shows clearly the EU's standing commitment to the two-state solution by supporting those institutions," European Union official Stefan Füle was quoted as saying.
