Ahead of an expected U.S. announcement that it will cut all aid to the UNRWA, which supports more than 5 million registered Palestinian refugees, Germany calls on European Union states to help bridge the expected US$217 million deficit. Yesterday, Jordan made a similar appeal to the Arab League.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas says US slashing of financial aid to UNRWA, which may result in the organization's disappearance, 'could unleash an uncontrollable chain reaction'; pledging to provide more money to help make up $217M deficit, Maas calls on other European states to follow suit.
