Shakira Speaks At Meeting Of The Minds: 'Children Should Not Pay The Price Of War'

Shakira is all smiles as she arrives at a press conference following the Meeting Of The Minds: Investing In Early Childhood Development As The Foundation For Sustainable Development Meeting at the United Nations on Tuesday (September 22) in New York City.

The 38-year-old singer was joined by executive director of UNICEF Anthony Lake as they spoke on the devastating photo of drowned Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi, whose body was washed up on a beach of a popular Turkish holiday resort.

“It is without a doubt one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our time and the image of that little boy washed up on the shore is a tragic one and one that we shouldn’t ignore and shouldn’t forget and it should humanize the plight of the refugees because children should not pay the price of war and because all of us have a responsibility today and we cannot escape it,” Shakira expressed during her speech – Watch it below!
