"As we mark World Refugee Day on June 20, it is an illusion to think that any country can retreat behind its borders and simply hope the problem will go away,” Angelina said in a statement. “We need leadership and effective diplomacy.”
“We need to focus on long-term peace based on justice, rights and accountability to enable refugees to return home,” she continued. “This is not a soft approach. It is the harder course of action, but it is the only one that will make a difference."
“The distance between us and the refugees of the past is shorter than we think,” the mom of six added.
