The Palestinian health minister on Saturday urged the Arab League and international community to provide US $4.3 million for health care in the Palestinian territories to prevent "a humanitarian and health disaster." Health Minister Bassem Naim also told reporters following a meeting with Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa that his government was ready to talk with Israel about opening the crossings to allow medical aid to reach the people. "As a people under occupation, we are doing our best for the aid to reach the people. We are ready to talk to any party but such talks won't mean recognition of the occupier," Naim said referring to Israel.
