In a speech congratulating the United Nations' refugee agency (UNHCR) Thursday, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon slammed its counterpart responsible for Palestinian refugees as ineffective and "morally and politically unacceptable."

"While the UNHCR has found durable solutions for tens of millions of refugees," Ayalon said, "the agency created specifically for the Palestinian context (UNWRA) has found durable solutions for no one."

"This has meant that a peaceful solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians remains further away," the deputy foreign minister added.

Israel, he said, supports the application of principles governing the treatment of refugees "to apply universally, without exception, including those in the Palestinian context."
