Angelina Jolie Releases Statement on Syrian Refugees - Read it Here

Angelina Jolie is turning the spotlight from her big wedding to Brad Pitt to the devastating situation in Syria in a newly released statement

“Three million refugees is not just another statistic,” the 39-year-old actress and UNHCR special envoy, said of the displaced citizens who have fled Syria because of the civil war. “It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria.”

“International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe. We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need,” Angelina added.

“The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria,” she concluded.
