Speech by of Federica Mogherini, Vice-President of the EC, in the conference "Supporting Syria and the Region"
On 4 February 2016, Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the EC, participated at the conference "Supporting Syria and the Region" in London.
The European Union and its Member States pledged more than €3 billion to assist the Syrian people inside Syria as well as refugees and the communities hosting them in the neighbouring countries for the year 2016.
The pledge triples the EU support offered at the last donor conference in Kuwait on 31 March 2015, and comes on top of the €5 billion that the EU has already committed in response to the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II.
