Melissa Fleming, UNHCR Head of Communications, has praised the response of both government and civil society to the refugee crisis in Austria.

While praising the overwhelming and compassionate response of thousands of volunteers and the official services, Fleming stated that such a response was not sustainable.

She called for a coordinated response among European governments, proposing urgent response by governments in the region, requiring political will.
