PA minister expects Israel to resume tax transfers

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority minister of economy said
Friday that he expects the Israeli government to stop withholding tax
revenues in the near future.

Jawad al-Naji told Ma’an that the financial crisis would be solved if the
Israeli government pays the tax revenues, if Arab countries contribute to
the so-called safety net, and when European countries resume aid.

Al-Naji said aid from the EU was expected to resume next month, while the
Israeli government will likely begin transferring tax revenues, which he
said was an obligation under international law.

The minister also said Arab countries were expected to contribute to the PA
"safety net" to help it continue operating despite sanctions. Saudi Arabia
is contributing the most, but he said Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar were likely to
contribute to the initiative.

He highlighted that officials were waiting until a summit in March to
confirm the proposed safety net.
