Amman Jordan - March 22, 2013


1. SOUNDBITE: President Barack Obama

"I am very concerned about Syria becoming an enclave for extremism because extremists thrive in chaos. They thrive in failed states. They thrive in power vacuums. They don't have much to offer when it comes to actually building things, but they're very good about exploiting situations that are no longer functioning. They fill that gap, and that's why I think it's so important for us to work as an international community to help accelerate a political transition that is viable."

3. SOUNDBITE: President Barack Obama

"We are already the single largest donor of humanitarian assistance to the Syrian people. Some of this has helped people here in Jordan, and today I'm announcing that my administration will work with Congress to provide Jordan with an additional $200 million in budget support this year as it cares for Syrian refugees and Jordanian communities affected by this crisis."

5. SOUNDBITE: (English) King Abdullah II, Jordan:

"Jordan today is hosting by far the largest number of Syrian refugees. The numbers have just exceeded 460,000 Syrians. That is 10% of our population, and the alarming figures if the rates continue as we're seeing today, will probably double by the end of the year. So for the Americans in audience, that's the equivalent of 30 million refugees crossing into the United States, with the possibility of that going up to 60 million by the end of the year, relative, obviously, to our populations."
