Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas appealed Tuesday for the European Union to give the Hamas-led government a "chance to adapt" to international requirements and not cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority. "Stopping assistance to the Palestinian Authority, cutting aid, will exacerbate the deteriorating economic and social situation," Abbas told the European Parliament.
