The United States will give the Palestinian Authority $200 million in direct aid to the Palestinian Authority, its share of the $900 million that was pledged at a PA donor's conference in Sharm el Sheikh in March. The donation was announced directly by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who said that the donation was "important to the United States and the Obama Administration."
Approving of the donation, US Consul General Jake Walles said that "the PA's proven track record in managing donor funds in a transparent and accountable manner gives us great confidence in providing direct budget support."
