Amman, Director General of the Jordanian Department of Palestinian Affairs (DPA) Rafiq Kherfan, and UNRWA Jordan Operations Director Mohammad Adar, reviewed a number of common topics and progress of the salary survey issue agreed upon last month.

Both officials discussed ways to develop the UN agency's work, especially the issue of hygiene in the camps and how to benefit from the waste through screening and recycling.

Adar lauded the role of the Jordanian diplomacy in mobilizing international support for the UNRWA financially and politically, which contributed to reducing the fiscal deficit to $89 million in addition to the vote obtained by UNRWA by 170 votes and renew its mandate for another three years.
