The head of the UN refugee agency on Thursday praised Syria and Jordan for taking in fleeing Iraqis and urged the international community to show its solidarity by providing more direct, bilateral support. Antonio Guterres, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, also highlighted the need to separate the political dimensions and relations in the region - especially regarding Syria - from the humanitarian problem at hand. "I believe the international community has a huge debt of gratitude towards Syria and Jordan - they're paying a very heavy price," Guterres told a small group of reporters in the Austrian capital.
