Syria major donors' conf. held at critical point – Al-Jarallah

KUWAIT, May 2 (KUNA) — The Syrian major donor’s conference Kuwait is hosting on Monday comes amid critical conditions and accelerating developments worldwide, Kuwait’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah told the event.
He added that the world is experiencing unprecedented humanitarian disasters in terms of long time span and numbers of victims, which aggravated challenges and made international cooperation inevitable to seek solutions as well as preventive measures to avoid future happenings.
Over the past five years, the world has witnessed back-to-back conflicts and civil wars that drove up to 60 million people out of their homes, or countries, Al-Jarralah said.
Unfortunately, the Middle East has had the lion’s share of extremism and terrorism that emerged over the past years, and the Syrian people were the most harmed, as their humanitarian crisis entered the sixth year.
The Syrian conflict has killed 260,000 people killed and created five million refugees and 13.5 million in desperate need for humanitarian aid inside Syria, the Deputy Foreign Minister said.
The repercussions of the conflict have come to hit Europe, posing a threat to international security and stability, he added.
Al-Jarallah noted that he is following up with “deep worry” developments in the aftermath of the Syrian regime’s brutal attacks that recently hit Aleppo and targeted schools and hospitals, killing and injuring hundreds of innocent people, among them women and children.
This latest events have doubled the ethical and humanitarian responsibility on the international community to end the bloody conflict that has been destroying all aspects of life in the country, as all parties do not hesitate to use all types of weapons, even internationally prohibited, against the unarmed civilians, he said.
Kuwait has generously responded to the implications of the Syrian humanitarian disaster and hosted the First, Second and Third International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria Donors over the past three years, at the behest of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
Donations announced during the three events hit USD 7 billion, which helped pave the way for long-term international humanitarian support to the Syrian people. Kuwait has also taken part in the first conference on Syria in London last February.
Kuwait’s contributions in the four events hit USD 1.6 billion. (pick up previous) amn.mss.msa
