UK Government continues to commit a significant amount of international
aid to assistance programmes in the regions neighbouring Syria, arguing
that this is preferable to encouraging Syrian refugees to make
dangerous journeys to Europe.

Earlier this year the UK government invited world leaders to discuss the continued crisis in war torn Syria.
Norwegian
Prime Minister Erna Solberg, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British
Prime Minister David Cameron, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon attended a
symposium in London where they discussed the refugee crisis.
