The Japanese government has announced its decision to resume funding for the UN Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and intends to transfer $35 million to support its operations.

Japanese Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa informed reporters that the agency has taken measures to improve its management and has started implementing new tools to prevent potential misuse of Japanese funds.

It's worth noting that several countries, including Australia, Sweden, and Germany (with the exception of projects in the Gaza Strip), previously announced the resumption of funding for UNRWA.

This decision came after funding had been suspended following reports linking some of the agency's employees to the events of the October 7 incident in Israel.

The United States, however, will not reinstate its funding for the agency until 2025.
