Adjust font size:

Delegates of members of the Middle East Quartet Committee met on Sunday in Jordan's capital Amman over aid to a Hamas-led Palestinian government.

Delegates of the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia, members of the Quartet Committee, would discuss ways to deliver aid to the Palestinian people after a Hamas-led Palestinian government took office on March 29.

The one-day meeting comes amid the Hamas-led government is facing Western pressure to cut off financial aid to the newly installed government after Hamas rejected to recognize Israel, renounce violence and honor previous agreements. The Quartet Committee has been a long time mediator over the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The Quartet has said that there would be an inevitable effect on direct aid to the Palestinian government if Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction, did not meet the political conditions.

The Palestinians have been largely dependent on financial aid from the West.
