Spokesperson for the UN agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) Sami Mushasha, Thursday affirmed in a press release that UNRWA and PLO’s Department of Refugee Affairs continue to work hand in hand with officials in Palestine to provide the best service to the Palestinian refugees.Mushasha said in a press release which WAFA received that “Palestine is an active member in UNRWA’s advisory commission, where UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl accepts the efforts and guidance from Palestinian officials when it comes to finding solutions to the severe fiscal deficit UNRWA is experiencing recently.

The latest comments came in light an article published on a local media outlet which claimed that UNRWA accuses the PLO of neglecting the crisis befalling Palestinian refugees in Lebanon and dealing with their suffering in a negative manner.

UNRWA’s spokesperson in Jerusalem Mushasha further affirmed that this close relationship with the PLO will continue and further flourish to safeguard the interests of Palestinian refugees everywhere.
