IRIB: "Hamas assured of continued UAE aid"

This is interesting after the ports controversy:
The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas announced said it was assured Wednesday that the United Arab Emirates would continue to provide financial aid to the Palestinians under a Hamas-led government.

During talks in Abu Dhabi with presidential affairs minister Sheikh Mansur bin Zayed al-Nahayan, the Emirates assured the Hamas delegation led by political bureau chief Khaled Meshaal about financial aid to the Palestinian people.

Ezzat al-Reshq told AFP that the Emirati side also promised to "continue to sponsor and support infrastructure projects in the occupied Palestinian territories."

The UAE has funded housing projects in the territories, footing the bill for the reconstruction of homes demolished by the Zionist regime's army in two parts of the Gaza Strip and in the Jenin refugee camp on the West Bank.

Saudi Arabia has also said it will carry on its financial support for the Palestinians.
