Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) spoke with Alhurra’s Congressional Correspondent Rana Abtar about the humanitarian crisis facing Syria’s neighboring countries as refugees continue to stream across borders. He noted that while the U.S. is the biggest provider of humanitarian aid in the world, the Syria refugee crisis is “the biggest humanitarian challenge since World War II.” Dealing with this crisis, he added, “is going to require an awful lot of nations. The U.S. has to be a leader, but other nations have to step up as well.”
