Fayyad: Arab states evading commitments to PA

Dec. 23, 2012 7:50 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 24, 2012 9:01 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Sunday criticized Arab states for evading their financial commitments to the PA.

Arab countries have yet to follow through on a pledge in March to provide a financial safety net of $100 million monthly to the PA to mitigate Israeli sanctions, which were imposed in November.

During a visit to Jenin, Fayyad called for an urgent Arab summit to address the PA's financial crisis.

The PA is trying to overcome the crisis, Fayyad said, stressing the importance of resilience in the face of challenges to the Palestinian people and its leadership.
