TEHRAN, Feb 22 (Reuters) Iran today pledged to provide financial assistance to the cash-strapped Palestinian Authority following threats by Western nations to halt aid to a Hamas-controlled government.

''We will definitely provide financial aid to this government so that they can stand up against the oppression of America,'' Ali Larijani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, was quoted as saying by the semi-official ISNA students news agency.
