Washington: Further steps by the Palestinians on Friday to deliver to the UN documents on joining the International Criminal Court will have implications for US aid, a senior State Department official said.

"It should come as no surprise that there will be implications for this step, but we continue to review," the official told a news agency.

"US assistance to the Palestinian Authority has played a valuable role in promoting stability and prosperity not just for the Palestinians, but also for Israel as well," the official added.
