European Union officials said Thursday it was still too early to decide whether to resume direct aid to the Palestinian Authority government. The rival Hamas and Fatah movements completed the formation of a unity government on Thursday, and the legislature is scheduled to vote on the coalition Saturday. EU spokeswoman Emma Udwin told reporters the European Commission had not yet assessed the program of the new PA unity government. "We need to study the program and the actions of the new government very carefully and of course ... to consult with our partners as well in order to take a decision on how and indeed whether it is possible to gradually re-engage," she said.
