In a statement, Hamad Obaid Al Zaabi, Member of the UAE delegation at UN, asked the participating countries to double their contribution to strengthen the budget of United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA).

Addressing the fourth committee of the 62nd session of the United Nations General Assembly debating political issues related to UNRWA, Al Zaabi said that UAE follows up with keenness, the efforts of UNRWA in ensuring humanitarian help and relief for over 4.6 million Palestinian refugees.
