Angelina Jolie for international solution to Syrian crisis
Washington D.C. [USA], Sept. 11 (ANI): When Angelina Jolie Pitt is not shooting an action-packed movie, she is vouching to save lives.

The 41-year-old actress, who reportedly met with families displaced by the Syrian crisis, along with UNHCR Special Envoy, recently held a press conference at the Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan to emphasize the need for international solution, reports People magazine.

The Academy Award winning actress urged the U.N. leaders to find an end to the Syrian conflict, the ongoing multi-sided armed conflict which began in 2011 in Syria.

"It is almost impossible to fathom what the last five years have meant, in the lives of refugees in Jordan and elsewhere in the region," the humanitarian said, adding, "Not a single family in this camp of 60,000 people has not suffered loss and trauma."

Besides, she also highlighted on the worsening situation as a consequence of lawmakers failing to provide enough aid to refugees as the crisis continues to rage on.

"They have had no food delivery since early August. There is next to no humanitarian access whatsoever. There is no mechanism for evacuating the war wounded. None of the basic protections under international humanitarian law are being applied," the American actress viewed.

She urged the world leaders to highlight the fundamental root causes of the Syrian conflict and what it will take to end it during the UN General Assembly to be held in 10 days time.

"Any increase in humanitarian funding saves lives and is deeply appreciated as well as absolutely necessary. But let's be clear: aid workers here are still waiting for what was promised at the last conference," she urged.

The filmmaker, who addressed the conference on behalf of the refugees, said they wanted a political solution so they could stop being "passive recipients of aid." (ANI)
