EU nations will give an additional billion euros ($1.1 billion) to UN agencies dealing with the refugee crisis, according to a draft statement from an emergency summit of the bloc's leaders Wednesday.

The leaders said they would "respond to the urgent needs of refugees in the region by helping the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Food Programme and other agencies with at least an additional 1 billion euro," said the draft obtained by AFP.
