Ambassadors of the Republic of Macedonia and the Republic of Serbia to the United States and president of the United Macedonian Diaspora discussed the current challenges in the Balkans and how the national and international communities are responding to the crisis. A senior advisor from ABA ROLI’s Middle East and North Africa division also talked about her experience with providing assistance to refugees fleeing Syria in Turkey.
