Obama will co-host the Tuesday summit with the UN's secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, and leaders of some of the countries deemed to have done most for refugees or carrying more than their share of the burden: Jordan, Mexico, Sweden, Germany, Canada and Ethiopia.
In an apparent swipe at U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, Obama said the refugee crisis was a "test of our common humanity, whether we give in to suspicion and fear and build walls". "This is the paradox that defines the world today", Obama said, adding that the world could not afford to "dismiss these visions". Countries also boosted financial contributions to United Nations appeals and worldwide humanitarian organizations by about $4.5 billion over 2015 levels.
More than 6 million refugees in more than 20 countries stand to benefit from the assistance announced Tuesday as President Barack Obama was set to host a special summit on the sidelines of the U.N. "In a world that left the age of empire behind, we see Russian Federation attempting to recover lost glory through force", Obama said. The European Union and World Bank also participated.
