PA to ask EU to increase financial support

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority will hold talks with European Union to increase financial support to the West Bank government, caretaker Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said Thursday.

During a visit to Jericho, Hamdallah told reporters that talks would be held with a representative of EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton to increase aid to Palestine.

The premier said the government was working to ensure salaries would be paid on time until the end of the year.

He also urged residents of Jericho to pay their electricity bills on time, particularly following the reduction in fees.
