10:01:19 Soundbite by Štefan Füle (in ENGLISH): This is yet another opportunity to show that there are actually no borders to our commitment to support the UNRWA actions. Signing today two contracts of eight millions to support the Palestinian children who fled the conflict in Syria and being hosted in Lebanon is extremely important. 00:00:31
10:01:51 Cutaway of a participant 00:00:05
10:01:56 Soundbite by Štefan Füle (in ENGLISH): Just at the beginning of September, there have been, I think, 6 000 of the Palestinian children in UNRWA schools and there are information and signals that the number is going to increase and then surely UNRWA needs more needs to address the situation. And I hope very much that what we have signed today and the financial commitment will enable you to meet those needs. 00:00:32

10:02:29 Soundbite by Štefan Füle (in ENGLISH): And I would like to repeat the commitment of my organisation to make sure that you have all the needs you need to address this situation. 00:00:15
10:02:44 Soundbite by Filippo Grandi (in ENGLISH): I'm very pleased to be here today in New York to sign two important agreements with Commissioner Füle representing another substantive contribution of the European Union to the work of UNRWA. In this particular case as the Commissioner just said these funds will be used to support the Palestinian refugees children and refugees in general coming from Syria, so victims somehow of the terrible conflict that is prevailing in Syria and that have been compelled to seek refuge in Lebanon. 00:00:37
10:03:22 Soundbite by Filippo Grandi (in ENGLISH): I would like to thank everybody in the Commission and all Europeans for this very significant support. Thank you. 00:00:10
