Fayyad: Two-thirds of pledges for 2010 not paid

Palestine Press Agency quotes the Wafa PA agency interview with Salam Fayyad.

It the interview, he says that paying PA salaries should not be affected by their budget crisis, but he reveals that out of the $1.8 billion pledged by the international community to prop up the PA this year, only $605 million have been paid so far.

He reiterated that he intends to make the PA self-sufficient, and of course blames Israel for their financial problems.
