Report: Canadian Aid to PA to Continue

There may be diplomatic differences between the Palestinian Authority and Canada but the government in Ottawa will give its counterpart in Ramallah development and security aid totalling 300 million dollars over the next five years, according to a Sunday report by Shalom Toronto.

The newspaper cited Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird as saying he went to Ramallah on Saturday to personally express his continued support for the progress the PA has made in security and economy in recent years and his desire to continue meaningful dialogue with the PA. It should be noted that Canada threatened to stop the aid if the PA takes action against Israel in the International Court of Justice in the Hague.
