1. (U) According to a February 20 Arab Times (local English
daily) article, the Arab League issued a report on Sunday,
February 19 identifying Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, and
Egypt as the only four Arab states to have fulfilled Arab
League payment commitments in support of the Palestinian
Authority (PA). Kuwait's $40M contribution, along with Saudi
Arabia ($30.8M), Algeria ($52.8M) and Egypt ($1M) bring to
$124.6M the total contributions toward the $330M requested
for the PA at the 2005 Arab Summit in Algeria, according to
the article.



2. (U) Embassy has not been able to independently confirm
the contents of the Arab League report; however, GOK
officials have also conveyed to Emboffs (per reftels) that
Kuwaiti contributions to the PA are current.
