Ambassador Connelly (Jan. 31): "The United States is also committed to working with the UN and civil society to address the needs of the Syrian people in Syria and throughout the region."

"We encourage other donor countries to meet the UN's regional appeal and Lebanon's specific requests for assistance. The people of the United States are making this contribution to further strengthen the ongoing commitment we have made to promote a stable, sovereign and independent Lebanon. We look forward to our continued partnership with the UN here in Lebanon and around the region, to provide for the basic needs of those who fled the violence in Syria and to help the generous communities that are hosting them here in Lebanon."
