EU Urges Conference for Syrian & Iraqi Refugees

The European Parliament urged the European Union to organize an international conference to raise financial assistance for refugees in Iraq and Syria and the countries that host them, the Anadolu Agency reported.

The pledge came in a resolution passed by the European Parliament General Assembly yesterday which discussed the difficult conditions suffered by refugees and displaced people in both Syria and Iraq, and the need for the EU to lend them a helping hand.

The resolution appealed to states that have pledged financial assistance in this regard to honor their commitments and fulfil them as soon as possible, condemning the attacks launched by both the Syrian regime and the Islamic State (ISIS).

The European Parliament stressed the need to develop a comprehensive policy and strategy in parallel with the war on ISIS including a strategy to dry up the organization’s sources of funding and to prevent foreign fighters from joining its ranks. (Source: Syrian Coalition + Anadolu News Agency)
