UNITED NATIONS, Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday expressed concern over a possible cut in U.S. contributions to a UN agency for Palestinian refugees.
"In UNRWA, I am very concerned. And I strongly hope that in the end it will be possible for the United States to maintain the funding of UNRWA in which the U.S. has a very important share," Guterres told reporters, referring to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees.
UNRWA (the UN Relief and Works Agency) is not a Palestinian institution, UNRWA is a UN institution, Guterres explained.
The agency is providing vital services to the Palestinian refugees, both in the occupied territories and in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon, he said.
"Those services are of extreme importance, not only for the well-being of these populations -- and there is a serious humanitarian concern here -- but also, in my opinion and the opinion that is shared by most international observers, including some Israeli ones, it is an important factor of stability."
If the agency will not be in a position to provide the vital services and the emergency forms of support that it has been providing, this will create a very, very serious problem, said the UN chief. "And we'll do everything we can to avoid the situation to occur."
It is reported that U.S. President Donald Trump is planning to withhold tens of millions of dollars for UNRWA, which was created in 1949 as a relief and human development agency for Palestinian refugees and their descendants.
BEIJING, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Leading Party members with the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) on Wednesday studied President Xi Jinping's latest anti-corruption instructions.
Xi, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, delivered a speech to the second plenary session of the 19th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC last week, calling for more anti-corruption efforts to "fundamentally improve the political ecosystem of the Party."
Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, presided over the meeting of the Leading Party Members' Group of the 12th CPPCC National Committee.
The meeting agreed that Xi's speech explained strategic guidelines for Party governance, summarized experiences of exercising full and rigorous governance over the Party and analyzed challenges and risks ahead, said a statement released after the meeting.
It also said that the Leading Party Members' Group should follow the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and contribute to strict governance over the Party.
The meeting listed the study and implementation of the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and Xi's latest anti-corruption instructions as CPPCC's primary political task.
The CPPCC should also safeguard Xi's position as the core of the CPC Central Committee and the whole Party, as well as the authority and unified, centralized leadership of the CPC Central Committee.
The statement said the CPPCC should take the lead in implementing the CPC's eight-point code on frugality.
