Syria's Neighbors Want More Humanitarian Aid

The four main host countries for Syrian refugees said on Sunday that only the wider distribution of aid inside Syria could curb an exodus that is putting huge strains on neighboring states, Reuters reported.

After talks at the Zaatari camp in Jordan with the UN high commissioner for refugees, ministers from Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon urged the implementation of a UN resolution passed in February that demanded rapid unhindered access for aid.
