Addressing the third panel discussion on the humanitarian aspect of the second Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region, the Foreign Minister said that there are many issues related to this crisis, the most important of which are the protection of civilians and the way this war has been conducted.
An appeal for worldwide aid to help desperate Syrians who have fled the country during the seven-year war has fallen short of its target despite warnings that millions face a lifetime marred by extreme poverty, humanitarian officials said on Wednesday.
The United Nations says more than 700,000 people have been displaced this year as al-Assad has escalated attacks against rebel forces, intensifying the humanitarian crisis.
"There have to be talks to spare the civilians from the fighting", he said, adding that 2.5 million people were at risk.
The head of the United Nations aid agency UNOCHA called the $4.4bn "a good start" but a group of nine worldwide aid organisations said the conference "did not go almost far enough".
The joint statement from CARE, IRC, Mercy Corps, NRC, Save the Children, Oxfam and other NGOs, added: "The promises made in Brussels, whilst welcome, will not keep a child from having to work in Lebanon, nor send every child to school in Jordan unless there are robust mechanisms to ensure that commitments are translated to action". He said the plight of Syrian refugees in the region is getting worse, and will only detotiarion with reduced global funding for aid.

The report says the situation is deteriorating in Europe, despite the fact it has been a traditionally safe environment for journalists.
The worldwide community's split over Syria was also highlighted by the fact that Damascus was not taking part in the conference organised by the EU. "However, the unresolved situation of tens of thousands of Syrians stranded at the northeastern border with Syria, and the thousands of refugees held in village 5 of Azraq refugee camp casts a shadow on Jordan's efforts" comments Ferhan "At a time when the situation in Syria is not conducive to the safe and voluntary return of refugees, solutions respecting freedom of movement, due process and the principle of nonrefoulement should be found for Jordan to continue to be a model response".
With nearly 400,000 people displaced since mid-December and tens of thousands pouring in from other regions, Idlib has also been hit by air strikes in recent weeks as fighting continues, Mueller said.
The European Union called on Russia, Iran and Turkey on April 25 to ensure a halt to fighting in Syria, as worldwide donors gathered in Brussels to drum up aid for the conflict-ravaged country.
Humanitarian agencies also pleaded for peace before the Syrian military and its Russian and Iranian backers turn their firepower on the rebel-controlled Syrian city of Idlib, warning of civilian suffering on a greater scale than during the siege of Aleppo past year.
"That power shift is going to push donors towards development".
The EU and a number of other countries have refused to rebuild to Syria until the start of meaningful peace moves to end the conflict. Mogherini also called on Russia, Iran and Turkey to halt military action in Syria.
