Actress and U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy Angelina Jolie issued a statement as the number of Syrian refugees reached three million.

Jolie, who has visited Syrian refugee camps and marked other milestones during the three-year-old conflict, said Friday:

"Three million refugees is not just another statistic. It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria.

"International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. U.N. Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe.

"We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need.

"The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria."JC Finley
