Biden Admin to Restore Aid, Diplomatic Relations with Palestinian Officials

HeadlineJan 27, 2021

Richard Mills, the acting U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the Biden administration will restore diplomatic relations with the Palestinian Authority and resume aid to Palestinians that was cut off during the Trump presidency. Mills also said the U.S. would continue to support a two-state solution, though many progressive regional experts oppose the strategy, saying it is no longer viable.

In related news, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced earlier this month parliamentary and presidential elections will be held this year — the first elections in the Occupied Territories in 15 years. Analysts say the move is an overture to the new Biden administration.
