EU ministers meet amid divisions over Palestinian aid


European Union foreign ministers will meet on Tuesday to try to resolve divisions within the 27-member bloc over whether to continue aid payments to Palestinians a day after the European Commission backtracked on an announcement suspending all such aid. The U-turn came after member states including Spain and France said they opposed the suspension announced by Neighbourhood and Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi on Monday. The EU's disarray reflected longstanding divisions within the bloc over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
