Queen Rania pleads with European nations to accept more Syrian refugees
Source: Daily Mail
Jordan's Queen Rania has used a speech in Berlin today to call upon Europe to help more Syrian refugees - and not to 'bolt the door for fear of the unknown'.
The 45-year-old was speaking at the Federal Foreign Office in front of an audience of 400 politicians and diplomats - including German Chancellor Angela Merkel - and was presented with the Walther Rathenau prize.
Accepting the award, which is given for outstanding work in foreign affairs, she spoke of Jordan's contribution to dealing with the Syrian refugee crisis and called for 'exceptional solutions' to what she described as 'a crisis of exceptional magnitude'.
