We are still required to work on providing a greater amount of aid and financial resources to handle this humanitarian crisis confronted by the Syrian people.

In this concern, we pledge all countries that did not yet announce their contributions to actively interact with these humanitarian initiatives and positively participate, as the door is still, and shall remain, open for pledging contributions, seeking to achieve the goals of this conference.

We all hope, that the cooperative efforts of the international community and joining forces find a solution to overcome this painful tragic situation in Syria, and stop the bloodshed, killing, destruction and the displacement of its people.

I reiterate my thanks to you for participating in this conference. I also thank His Excellency the Secretary General of the United Nations Mr. Ban Ki-moon and his assistants for the great efforts they exerted for the success of this important conference, which sends a message of support and solidarity to the Syrian people, materializing the sympathy of the international community with them to overcome their humanitarian suffering.

We pray to God Almighty to achieve all the anticipated goals of the Syrian people, and to haste an end to its humanitarian tragedies, saving Syria and restoring its stability and welfare.
