WASHINGTON, Nov 10 (Reuters) - The United States will give an additional $150 million to the Palestinian Authority
as Washington seeks to boost the fledgling government amid an impasse in peace talks with Israel
, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.
Clinton made the announcement in a joint video conference with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad
, who has been scrambling to fill a huge projected budget hole as his government expands services in expectation of full eventual statehood. (Reporting by Andrew Quinn; Editing by Bill Trott)
