The foreign minister of the Hamas-led Palestinian government said Tuesday that the European Union was split over withholding aid if Hamas refused to recognize Israel and renounce violence. Mahmoud Zahar spoke to reporters on the first stop of a tour that will take him to the United Arab Emirates, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and Morocco before he goes on to Iran, China and Malaysia. He claimed France, Switzerland, Norway and Italy were against withholding aid and were supported in that by Russia. Qatar, he said, had pledged US$ 50 million to the Palestinians and had assured it would do more to help with health, education and agricultural infrastructure.
