The sixth edition of the “Brussels” conference, organized by the European Union on supporting the future of Syria and the region, which started on Monday in the Belgian capital, concluded on Tuesday.
European Union Commissioner Oliver Farrelly revealed that the conference raised about $6.7 billion for Syria and its neighbors, as a lot of money will be allocated to help Syrians who have sought refuge in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, as well as Egypt and Iraq, according to Sputnik.
The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Geir Pedersen, stressed during the conference that the Syrians have never needed more support than they need now, pointing to the continuing mass displacement of the Syrian population.
“The economic crisis continues and violence continues, with the risk of continuing escalation even if there is something of a military stalemate,” Pedersen said, adding that diplomacy has become more difficult than it was before due to the effects of the war in Ukraine.
About 70 countries and international institutions, including United Nations agencies, participated in the conference. The two-day conference will discuss ways to continue supporting the Syrian people and mobilizing the international community in support of a comprehensive and reliable political solution to the conflict in Syria, in line with the UN Security Council resolution. 2254″.
