The appeal was made in a presidential statement adopted by the council on Friday.
The statement says that the Syrian crisis has become the world&39;s largest humanitarian crisis, which is not only threatening peace and security in the region but also spilling over to neighboring countries, displacing millions of Syrians.
The Security Council urged to address the spill-over of the Syrian conflict into neighboring countries and called for coordinated international support for those countries that host Syrian refugees.
Executive Director of the World Food Program Ertharin Cousin described the refugee situation as appalling.
Parents pull their children out of school to search for work. Food has become part of negotiations to marry off young daughters or part of negotiations to release children to fight in armed groups.
“Situation in the Middle East is a cancer that is spreading and metastasizing. If things continue this way, we could see future developments being out of control, independently out of our will and will increase the dangers that have global consequences,” said Antonio Guterres, UN High Commissioner for refugees.
The council further urged donors and international finacial institutions to extend support to countries affected by the conflict.
Angelina Jolie, Academy Award winning actress and UN Special Envoy, criticised the UN Security Council&39;s failure to end the war and protect millions of refugees fleeing the conflict.
