BRUSSELS: Saudi Arabia has provided more than $6.7 billion in humanitarian support to help the Syrian people since the crisis began over 10 years ago, said the head of the Kingdom’s mission to the European Union.

Saad bin Mohammed Al-Arifi also stressed the vital role played by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) in upcoming projects to be implemented this year, worth around $32.7 million.

Al-Arifi made the comments during the 6th Brussels Conference on Supporting the future of Syria and the Region, which was attended by representatives of governments, international organizations and agencies, as well as regional organizations and representatives of civil society.

He expressed his hope that the conference would achieve its goals to support the displaced, Syrian refugees and the host countries, and that security and peace would prevail in Syria and the world.
