The conference will involve a ministerial meeting on June 15, as well as a Day of Dialogue on the preceding day, which aims to engage civil society from Syria and beyond, decision-makers, and operational partners in discussions regarding Syria, the region, and the associated humanitarian and resilience challenges, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

The EU emphasized that the conference will serve to renew the political and financial commitment of the international community to support Syria's neighboring countries, with a particular focus on Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, and Iraq.

The statement highlighted the significance of Brussels VII as the primary pledging event of the year for Syria and its neighboring countries.

The overarching objective of the Brussels Conferences is to ensure sustained support for the Syrian people, both within Syria and in the broader region, by mobilizing the international community in favor of a comprehensive and credible political solution to the Syria conflict in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 2254.

The Brussels VII conference will address critical humanitarian and resilience issues affecting Syrians in Syria and neighboring countries, as well as the impact on communities hosting Syrian refugees in the region, as stated by the EU.

Furthermore, the conference will provide an interactive platform for dialogue between the EU and civil society, including non-governmental organizations actively engaged in Syria and the region.

Since 2011, the EU has contributed approximately 30 billion euros in support of Syria and its neighboring countries.

The Brussels Conference serves as a key opportunity to reaffirm this commitment and discuss ways to address the ongoing challenges in the region.
