UN refugee agency says the world is in "abject denial" about Iraqi refugee problem in Syria

March 20th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

The UN says the world is in denial about the Iraq refugee crisis in Syria and Jordan. Both countries have asked for more help.

Syria hosts about 1.2 million, and Jordan has 800,000.

The UN praised Syria for its work, and the US even sent a top level government minister to discuss the problem.

    It’s probably assistance with the refugee problem is one of the carrots they would dangle. I think this is where things might get dirty because what they’d ask for might not be in the best interests of Syrians and, should the perks be accepted, they might not be used for the Iraqi refugees.
