Norway offers to host an international donor conference for Syrian refugees

‘‘The conflict in Syria has created the largest refugee crisis in our time. The international community must step up its efforts to help refugees and civilians in need in Syria and the neighbouring countries. Finance Minister Siv Jensen and I agree that Norway should take an initiative vis-à-vis the UN. I have therefore written to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today, offering to host a donor conference for the Syrian crisis in Norway,’ said Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
