Cameron pledges £100 million to help Syria

“When it comes to Syria, Britain has already given over a billion pounds. Today I can announce we will commit another £100 million (about €136 million) including £40 million pounds for the vital World Food Programme,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said upon his arrival at an extraordinary EU summit in Brussels on Wednesday (23 September).

Cameron also said that Europe needs a comprehensive approach to the migration crisis. “We need to do more to stabilise the countries in the regions from which these people are coming,” he added.

EU leaders are meeting in Brussels to discuss measures to tackle the current migration crisis.
