Mi agradecimiento a @interiorgob y a las autoridades españolas por el reconocimiento al mérito a la protección internacional que nos han otorgado. Lo hemos compartido con organizaciones y ciudadanos que trabajan incansablemente desde España en favor de las personas refugiadas. https://t.co/dAVjzIhCqm
In a world of 8 billion people, human mobility is crucial and requires more attention: reducing its negative impact on nature; making migration safe, regular and orderly; and addressing its humanitarian dimension — forced displacement — to ensure protection of those who need it. https://t.co/sQq3R7zKxs
The @UN humanitarian organisations have delivered aid to #Kherson. UNHCR’s @KarolinaBilling joined coordinator Denise Brown and other colleagues in the first UN convoy to the city. More will follow in support of the government of Ukraine, wherever we can reach Ukrainians in need. https://t.co/1TMYH7vtyk
Un grande onore condividere il Premio Colombe d’Oro per la pace di @ArchivioDisarmo con Marco Tarquinio di @Avvenire_Nei, @_Nico_Piro_ e Lucia Sgueglia @maiortom — e un onore ancor più grande riaffermare con loro che non dobbiamo mai abbassare la guardia nella ricerca della pace. https://t.co/2LPmAmNuyw
A great discussion with Dr Sohn Hyuk-Sang, President of KOICA. As a humanitarian agency dealing with protracted refugee crises UNHCR values working with development organizations. Our partnership with KOICA is very effective in addressing the long term challenges of displacement. https://t.co/zjBEvv4P9u
A group of refugees and asylum seekers in the Republic of Korea told us their stories: they’re grateful to have found shelter from violence in their countries, but their conditions are precarious. Korea’s asylum system must be improved to provide real stability and opportunities. https://t.co/GEl7iqEFBk
I agreed with Minister of Justice Han Dong-Hoon that UNHCR will step up its support to the Government with a common goal: ensuring that the Republic of Korea’s asylum laws and policies are consistent with international standards and with pledges made at the Global Refugee Forum. https://t.co/o0C1UJqdH9
Last night, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Jung Woo-sung and I laid flowers for the victims of the Itaewon tragedy in Seoul.
I wish to offer deepest condolences once again to all Koreans.
My thoughts are also with those injured, those who lost loved ones, and the rescue teams. https://t.co/ToaoRDAZx6
We discussed UNHCR’s cooperation with the Korean Government in a positive meeting with @PrimeMinisterKR Han Duck-soo. The Republic of Korea is a valued partner, whose financial, moral and political support has grown over the years, as global refugee numbers continue to escalate. https://t.co/xz54CopgRq
