GENEVA (Sep. 28)
Israel will continue to work for the economic development of the territories it administers, despite the violence of the Palestinian uprising, an Israeli official told an international panel here Wednesday.
Avraham Milo, minister-counselor of Israel to the United Nations in Geneva, addressed the board meeting of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
“Twenty-one years of Israeli administration have contributed to many economic benefits in the territories,” Milo said, and “recent developments have not weakened our determination.
“The basic services will continue to be provided by the civil administration,” Milo said.
