Statement of the Associate Administrator Berlin Conference on the Syrian Refugee Situation – Supporting Stability in the Region
I wish to congratulate Germany on the foresight and commitment shown in convening this timely and important conference.

It has challenged the way the international community collectively responds to crises.
