1. The leaders of Germany, Kuwait, Norway, the United Kingdom and the United Nations have today hosted the “Supporting Syria & the Region 2016” Conference in London, bringing together over 60 countries, international organisations, business, civil society, Syrians and people affected by the conflict to agree a comprehensive new approach on how we respond to this protracted crisis, building on the 2014 Berlin Conference and the three Kuwait Pledging Conferences.
Solidarity with Refugees and their Hosts
Distressed by the terrible suffering of the people in Syria, which has forced almost half of the population to leave their homes, with over three million refugees having fled across the border, the majority being women and children.
As a result of the conflict Syria is at risk of losing a whole generation of university graduates, future experts and leaders. For this reason the Federal Foreign Office is launching a package of measures for Syrian students which will run for several years. This will significantly increase the number of scholarships available to young Syrians in Germany and in the region (in countries including Egypt, Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon).
Speaking in Berlin on 22 September, Federal Foreign Minister Steinmeier explained:
The violence in Libya is continuing. The United Nations and the European Union have voted to impose sanctions on Muammar Al Qadhafi's regime; Libya's membership of the United Nations Human Rights Council has been suspended until further notice.
