Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard talked about the Syrian refugee and migrant crisis in Europe and the U.S. and world response to it. Record numbers of migrants and refugees arrived in Europe in October 2015 from Syria and other countries, according the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). There were then more displaced people than at any time in recorded history and the largest migration since World War II in Europe. The number of displaced people could get even larger, the UNHCR believed. The European Union (EU) foreign policy director said there was a risk of the system collapsing while the debate continued over how to meet the migrant situation and whether to take in all refugees.

Assistant Secretary Richard participated by remote video from the State Department Briefing Room. After the interview the reporters in the studio discussed her responses with the host. close
