Bulgaria: Today's Quote: Angelina Jolie Photo: www.un.org

''The problem is not lack of information. We know in excruciating detail what is happening in Yarmouk, in Aleppo, in Homs. The problem is lack of political will,'' stated actress and humanitarian activist Angelina Jolie during her visit to the UN Security Council meeting in New York. She has been serving as a special envoy to the UNHCR since 2001.

''We cannot look at Syria and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision and think this is not the lowest point in the world's inability to protect and defend the innocent.

And while these debates are important, I also urge the Security Council to visit Syrian refugees, to see first-hand their suffering and the impact it is having on the region.

Those refugees cannot come to the council, so please, will you go to them ?''
