Erray reiterated during the discussion that the suffering of Palestinian refugees will not end without the termination of the Israeli occupation.

He stressed that the Tunisians are completely supporting the Palestinian cause and Palestinian refugees who are enduring exceptional suffering during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tunisia has said it will exert more efforts to mobilise support for UNRWA in order to be able to continue offering its “noble” services to Palestinian refugees.
