How would you tell? … Jordan warns of ‘regional instability’ after Palestinian refugee agency gets US funding cut

Jordan’s foreign minister has warned of “dangerous consequences to regional stability” if the Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA cannot provide services to refugees, saying he regrets the US decision to cut aid to the agency.

Speaking to Reuters on Saturday, Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said that Amman regrets Washington’s decision to cut funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), a decision that was announced by the US State Department on Friday. The move represents a major hit for the agency, as the US had long been its biggest donor.
