New York: Ambassador Lana Zaki Nusseibeh, Permanent Representative of the United Arab Emirates to the United Nations, met yesterday with Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General and Emergency Relief Coordinator (USG/ERC) at UN headquarters in New York.

They discussed the humanitarian consequences of the Syrian crisis, in particular the plight of Syrian refugees, the impact on neighbouring countries, humanitarian aid efforts and the challenges facing efforts to provide aid to those affected by the crisis. The discussion also touched on the assistance provided by the UAE to Syrian refugees. The health system in Syria is under particular pressure, with many fatalities generated not by direct impact, but by a shortage of medical supplies.

USG Amos briefed Ambassador Nusseibeh on the current political efforts in the Security Council, which resulted in the Council yesterday adopting a statement addressing the humanitarian situation in Syria.

At the conclusion of the meeting, USG Amos expressed her appreciation to Ambassador Nusseibeh for the important role played by the UAE in alleviating the suffering of the Syrian people during this difficult time. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
