Qatar pledges $75M for Syria


Brussels, 29 May 2024 (TDI): The State of Qatar pledges $75 million for the Syrian people on 28th May 2024. The announcement was made during a donors’ meeting in Brussels by the Minister of State for International Cooperation Lolwah bint Rashid Al Khater.

Qatar has in the past, actively supported humanitarian initiatives in Syria said the Minister of State for International Cooperation. Additionally, she expressed hope that the ministerial conference would help raise enough funds for the Syrian cause.

Furthermore, the Minister said that all parties concerned must have courage and must remain resolute. She also encouraged the donors to continue with their financial support for the Syrian cause.

“Experiences have shown that ending conflicts and civil wars requires strength, courage, and sincerity from the parties involved.”

Call for International Cooperation

Adding on, she stressed how critical it was to keep up the assistance for Syria for conflict resolution and achievement of peace. The Syrian crisis has protracted only due to the reason that there has been insincerity on the part of regional and international powers to find a solution.

The Syrian crisis is a humanitarian issue that has been “internationalized for years”. This means that only a regional and global agreement is the workable solution to reach a political resolution.

Minister of State for International Cooperation Lolwah bint Rashid Al Khater ended her speech on a positive note. She questioned the possibility of envisioning a different Syria in which the nation’s unity and territorial integrity were intact.

She said the State of Qatar hopes to see a Syrian nation where refugees securely return home without the fear of reprisals.

“Can the collective imagination transcend the current moment to envision a different future for Syria, one where refugees return to their homeland safely without retribution, where the unity and territorial integrity of Syria are preserved, and where both the stones and the people are rebuilt?” she added.
