CUTAWAY: HANNES SWOBODA TALKING TO VERONIQUE DE KEYSER AT THE DEBATE 6. VERONIQUE DE KEYSER (S&D MEP, BE) SAYING (FRENCH SPEECH) DURING THE DEBATE: "One word about refugees. They are the third drama of Syria. We have already said that the bordering countries were going to explode if these migrations continued so please, ensure that Europe opens its arms. In the resolution we haven't achieved to have a common European position on this matter." 7. CUTAWAY: VERONIQUE DE KEYSER TALKING TO A JOURNALIST 8. VERONIQUE DE KEYSER (S&D MEP, BE) SAYING (FRENCH SPEECH): "We have to remember that for the moment there are 2 millions Syrian refugees in bordering countries, 4 millions of internally displaced persons in Syria, one million out of four in Lebanon, it is terrifying! We don't have 40 per cent of the financing that we need to survive the winter. So we definitely need to focus on humanitarian aid and ask the Member States to keep financing it. It is vital." 9.
