Jordan's King Abdullah and US President Barack Obama addressed the Syrian refugee crisis in a joint-press conference in Amman, with Obama pledging to give $200 million to Jordan in aid of the crisis.

"We haven't led with words, but with deeds," Obama said. "We have worked diligently to help organize and mobilize political opposition. This is critical; in it's absence, it would be impossible to transition to a legitimate government," he said.

The US is providing not only advice, but resources, training to Syria to provide direct services and relief efforts for the citizens that are "internally displaced," Obama said.
