Uptade Japan to resume funding to UN Palestinian refugee agency

TOKYO: Japan is preparing to resume funding to the UN’s crisis-hit Palestinian refugee agency, which coordinates nearly all aid to Gaza, the government said.
Once the sixth-largest contributor to the agency, Japan joined more than a dozen countries in pausing funding after Israel claimed that 12 of UNRWA’s 13,000 Gaza employees were involved in the deadly Oct. 7 Hamas attack.
Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa met with UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini in Tokyo to discuss the agency’s measures to strengthen governance and transparency.
