Position On The Syrian Refugee Crisis Essay
According to a recent article, “More than four years after it began, the full-blown civil war has killed over 220,000 people, half of whom are believed to be civilians” (“About the UN”); the article further explains, “The U.N. estimates that 7.6 million people are internally displaced. When you also consider refugees, more than half of the country’s pre-war population of 23 million is in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, whether they still remain in the country or have escaped across the borders.” (“About the UN”). The UN is working to deal with the crisis and surrounding countries; like Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Egypt; are taking in refugees in support of the crisis.
Though the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is one of the most isolated countries in the world, and located nowhere near Syria, they do have a position on the Syrian Refugee Crisis. It is not be the best position regarding the crisis since the DPRK treats its people poorly and vast majorities are in poverty.
