US President Donald Trump announced on early Sunday, October 13, 2019, that his country will send $50 million in stabilization assistance to Syria, Washington Post reported.

Trump said that the funding will provide emergency financial assistance to Syrian human rights defenders, civil society organizations and reconciliation efforts directly supporting ethnic and religious minority victims of the conflict.

The US President added that he hopes regional and international partners will continue their contributions, as the freedom and safety of ethnic and religious minorities remain a top priority for his Administration.
