Secretary General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations called for “an exponential increase in global solidarity” urging countries to accept 480,000 Syrian refugees.

The European Union has struggles to come up with comprehensive and effective responses and integration of the huge influx of refugees coming into Europe.

Mr. Ban said “The only durable solution to the Syrian refugee crisis, however, is a political solution to the conflict.” Mr. Ban is correct in making this statement. European nations need to allocate their resources and develop comprehensive plans on taking in refugees.
