Meqdad and Schwartz discuss Iraqi refugees' needs


Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Meqdad discussed on Wednesday with the US Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration Affairs, Eric Schwartz, cooperation between Syria and the US to meet needs of Iraqi refugees in Syria through UNHCR.
Schwartz expressed his country's appreciation for Syrian efforts to embrace Iraqi refugees and providing them with all needs.
Last September, Schwartz reviewed with Syria's Foreign Minister Walid al-Mouallem in New York cooperation in meeting Iraqi refugees' needs.
Syria hosts around 1.2 million Iraqi refugees, and official sources confirm that they cost the state (Syria) annually $2 billion.
