PA organizing donor conference in Norway

Efforts are under way to arrange a pledging conference of donor countries in Norway at the beginning of September, Mohammad Mustafa, the West Bank-based deputy prime minister of the technocrat government, told The Associated Press.

However, Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq suggested that, although the group is willing to let Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas handle the fund-raising at the conference, it will seek a role in reconstruction.

“We know that we have a national unity government that can handle the donors’ conference and the rebuilding, but implementing it on the ground requires national cooperation,” he told AP.
