ADDRESSING a one-day, high-level conference in Geneva on Syrian refugees, senior United Nations officials stressed the needs to provide resettlement and other answers for their plight, urging third countries to share those responsibilities with Syria’s immediate neighbors. “We are here to address the biggest refugee and displacement crisis of our time…” Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told the gathering at the UN in Geneva, attended by the representatives of 92 countries together with governmental and nongovernmental organizations. Some 4.8 million Syrians have been forced to flee across borders by five years of war, while another 6.6 million are internally displaced.
