The Arab Host Countries for Palestinian refugees in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Jordan convened a meeting on Tuesday morning at the headquarters of the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates in Amman.

The participants shed the light on the financial crises faced by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

The meeting, chaired by Jordan, also discussed underway preparations for the donor conference slated to be held in New York on June 23, 2020.

The videoconference was attended by the head of the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees in Syria Ali Mustafa and a number of officials from Arab host countries.

The participants called on donor countries to fulfill their pledges and send their cash assistance to UNRWA, which they said plays a vital role in maintaining peace and security in the region.
