Zaatari, Jordan: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie says the Syrian civil war is the world's most acute humanitarian crisis and is calling on world leaders to make diplomatic efforts to end it succeed.

Jolie spoke at Jordan's largest camp for Syrian refugees Thursday, which she visited as special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency. “I appeal to the world leaders - please, set aside your differences, unite to end the violence, and make diplomacy succeed,'' she said, drawing attention to the U.N.'s World Refugee Day.

Jordan hosts more than half a million displaced Syrians including 185,000 in Zaatari camp, which Jolie visited along with UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres and Norwegian Foreign Affairs Minister Espen Barth Eide.
