UN, EU call for return to Syria peace talks

"Despite fighting, bombing and violence, we will not give up", Mr. Lowcock said.

Lowcock said additional pledges of $3.3 billion for 2019 are expected, but more money is needed for humanitarian purposes in Syria and to assist refugees in nearby countries.

"We want Syrians to know that they are not forgotten, we're appealing on their behave for an end to the violence", said Mark Lowcock, Representative for U.N. Humanitarian Affairs.

The European Union, which hosted the conference, had hoped the meeting of more than 80 countries, aid organizations and agencies would stimulate stalled United Nations peace initiatives, in addition to raising humanitarian aid.

The funds will be used for humanitarian aid within Syrian borders, and to help Syrian refugees in Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.

"It is a natural phenomenon as the conflict continues year after year", Steiner said.

"Of all the humanitarian emergencies facing us today none match Syria's in terms of scale or in the immensity of need", said Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. "In 2018, the humanitarian drama.is actually at its peak".

"Whether for refugees, for host countries, or for host communities those needs are as urgent, as great, as ever".

Neighboring countries have urged the global community to help alleviate the stress of housing massive amounts of Syrian refugees.

Conference programme "The worldwide community must enhance their support for longer term development efforts to these countries on the front line who have been providing a global public good", he said.

Noting that prolonged support for the war-torn country is increasingly burdening donor nations, Kono stressed the need for an worldwide framework to provide sustainable aid to Syria. However, Damascus hasn't been invited, unlike various Syrian non-governmental organizations most of which are based overseas.

Despite the worsening conditions, officials said they were barely maintaining the level of help they were able provide previous year.

Moreover, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, who co-chaired the conference, have urged the event's participants to influence the parties to conflict in Syria to abandon the use of chemical weapons. Also on day 2, the total amount of aid pledges received will be announced.
