5:03 am
two hundred fifty million dollars at a donor's conference in new york saying its struggle since the u.s. cut contributions earlier this year the top administration slashed funding by more than half in january over political differences with the palestinian leadership more than five million refugees in the middle east rely on the agency for education food and health services. as those crucial resources could be cut as soon as august our diplomatic editor james bays has more from the united nations. the u.n. has been trying for months to fill the massive shortfall after the u.s. pulled out most of its funding from the u.n. secretary general of the start of this plan. conference appealed to nations to come up with more funding and the head of honor of the commissioner general credible it said time was running out our current shortfall remains now in excess of two hundred fifty million us dollars and we still have a very big task ahead at this point we do not i repeat we do not have the income to
5:04 am
ensure that the schools will open on time in august and in the absence of significant new funding we will have to begin taking very difficult measures in july impacting the level of services as well as our staff the situation will be particularly critical for emergency operations in the west bank and in gaza what is at risk is food for one million people in the gaza strip as ever at these sort of pledging conferences a little hard to work out exactly what is new money and what has already been committed by countries in the past it appears though there are some new fans coming from the e.u. from mexico from sweden and from belgium and other countries like the u.k. bringing forward some of their funding the a total amounts though are nowhere near the shortfall of two hundred fifty million
5:05 am
dollars and the u.n. is still desperately looking for further funding or former u.s. diplomat hillary mann leverett says the white house is trying to send a message to both the palestinians and western allies by cutting funding to a role. i think the troubling ministration is in a sense deliberately trying to squeeze the palestinians to squeeze them through on russia through the cutting of funding through but also freezing aid directly to the palestinians that that washington gives such the palestinian authority and ramallah so we see these things happening at the same time as politically the troubling ministration is getting ready to roll out its deal of the century or some sort of settlement with israel an arab states the idea is to squeeze the palestinians as hard as possible and really force a settlement where the arab states would have to have to absorb the palestinians and therefore there wouldn't be a refugee issue as the united states pulls out its financial support it makes it harder for other countries to really make up that shortfall because they fear being
5:06 am
punished by the united states they fear losing access to the u.s. market they fear being punished by u.s. allies particularly in the middle east some of our arab our arab friends may similarly want to go along with the troubling ministration and therefore not look kindly on european countries for example that could increase significantly their financial contribution so the u.s. withdrawal is really meant to not only pull out u.s. funding but have a chilling effect on other countries funding the organization though the trumpet ministrations peace plan for israel and palestine has been on the agenda of the one towse where the president hosted jordan's king abdullah trump's senior adviser and son in law judge cushion who says the plan will be announced soon with or without support from the palestinian leadership president mahmoud abbas has refused to work with the u.s. since december whether to recognize jerusalem as the couple of israel. now the e.u. is calling on all parties in yemen to prevent any further escalation of the

has been unable to control the double digit inflation rate that has tormented arjun times for years the recent devaluation caused by a strengthening u.s. dollar forced the governmental request and urgency emergency fifty billion loan from the i.m.f. prices have continued to go up since then and that's why on monday argentina was paralyzed by a strike by workers demanding a rise in wages trains buses subways and flies were also spend it on monday because of the struggle this place is on is the largest transport hub in one aside and as you can see it's completely paralyzed a sign of the strength that the labor unions have in argentina growing i right from northern argentina and was not sure how to make it home whether the girl is a winner we knew this was happening but i thought there would be something very small think i understand the need to go on strike but we're all affected by what's
5:15 am
happening. the i.m.f. loan brings back memories of the two thousand and one economic crisis when argentina defaulted on its sovereign debt because your book rolling stain was part of the negotiating team at the time and says that the situation is different now you know your government responded fast they sought help from the i.m.f. because they knew nobody else would loan them the money the crisis would have been worse if they hadn't. and that's why many on the streets are not as optimistic and fear that another economic crisis may be closer and the government would like to admit it is somewhat i'll just see that when a site is well still ahead here on al-jazeera italy sends a senior minister to libya urging it to keep would be migrants from crossing the mediterranean. and the fears of growing tribalism in american politics is president trump's divisive rhetoric to blame do stay with us here on al-jazeera.
