ABSTRACT

Middle East: U.S. Foreign Assistance, FY2001, FY2002, and FY2003 Request [March 28, 2002]   [open pdf - 64KB]

"The report describes some aspects of U.S. foreign assistance to the Middle East and includes tables showing U.S. funding of the Wye agreement, and U.S. assistance to the Middle East and North Africa for FY2001, an estimated level for FY2002, the President's request for supplemental assistance for FY 2002, and the President's request for FY2003. Congress may decide if it will retain the cap or ceiling it placed on U.S. assistance to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, the Palestinians and several multilateral operations, set at $5.1 billion for FY2002, or if it will provide the $5.3 billion for FY2003 requested by the Bush Administration. Also, Congress may reconsider restrictions and conditions on U.S. assistance for the Palestinians. The report will not be updated."
