Merkel says humanitarian aid system not working


Istanbul – German Chancellor, Angela Merkel on Monday said that the current global humanitarian aid delivery system is not working, called for efficient help to those in need in times of crisis.

“Today we do not yet have a functioning humanitarian aid system,” she says at a UN summit on humanitarian aid.

“Very often pledges are made but the money does not reach where it is most needed,’’ she said.

Merkel also decries the violations of the laws of war taking place in conflict zones.

“In Syria and elsewhere hospital and medical centres being bombed, people are losing their lives,” she said. (dpa/NAN)
