Sure, she just married Brad Pitt, but that doesn’t mean Angelina Jolie has forgotten about her duties as a UNHCR Special Envoy.

The “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” star released a statement today (August 29) regarding the horrific conditions of war going on in Syria.

Jolie declared, "Three million refugees is not just another statistic. It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria."

"International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe.”

Additionally, Angelina explained, "We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need. The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria."
