About the agreement

The twinning relationship between the Municipality of Bethlehem and the Municipality of Abu Dhabi began in 1977 as part of the twinning Program between the Arab cities and the occupied cities of Palestine. Abu Dhabi gave Bethlehem Municipality $1,200,000, to help it through the financial hardships it suffers as a result of occupation policies.
