9 AUGUST 2021

The following is a near-verbatim transcript of today’s noon briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General.


Questions and Answers


Question:  Steph, two questions.  First of all, the organization UN Watch issued a report on UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), detailing a lot of incitements and some shenanigans.  Two questions on that.  First of all, I’ve seen UNRWA referring to the report.  I haven’t seen anything from the Secretary-General.  Specifically, should there be… since the report is so detailed, should there be a outside… an investigation outside of UNRWA into the allegations?

Spokesman:  Look, I don’t have any further information.  We fully support our UNRWA colleagues.
