Syria's neighbours need solidarity, says UN refugee chiefListen /
Countries sharing borders with Syria need international solidarity as they continue to keep their borders open to Syrian refugees fleeing fighting in their country.
He said 230,000 refugees have asked to be registered in the four countries whose economies have been impacted by the ongoing conflict in Syria.
"Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq are showing an enormous generosity. I think they deserve the same generosity from the international community to help them cope with this challenge. On the other hand, I think it is very important to recognize that there is no humanitarian solution for this problem. The solution is political, and only the Security Council can take the decisions that might allow for a political solution sooner rather than later."
Antonio Guterres also stressed the need for the international community to continue to support the Syrians inside the country.
