Aid Agency Is Part of the Problem in the Middle East” (Swissinfo-Switzerland)
UN aid work for Palestinian refugees is a stumbling block to peace in the Middle East, hindering the integration of Palestinians who have lived in Jordan and Lebanon for years, according to Swiss Foreign Affairs Minister Ignazio Cassis.

So long as Palestinians live in refugee camps, they can dream of returning home, he said in an interview published in several Swiss newspapers on Thursday. “It is unrealistic that all of them can fulfil this dream. Yet UNRWA keeps this dream alive.”

“Today it has become part of the problem. It supplies the ammunition to continue the conflict. By supporting UNRWA, we keep the conflict alive. It’s a perverse logic.”
