UN urges governments to find better long-term solutions for refugees
Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said this at World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul
“We are here to shape a different future. I urge national governments to commit to cutting by half the number of internally displaced people by 2030 and to find better long-term solutions for refugees and displaced people based on more equal sharing of responsibilities”, Ban Ki-moon said.
As 112 International reported, the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul is the first one of such kind ever held under the aegis of the UN. The Summit has three main goals: to re-inspire and reinvigorate a commitment to humanity and to the universality of humanitarian principles, to initiate a set of concrete actions and commitments aimed at enabling countries and communities to better prepare for and respond to crises, and be resilient to shocks; finally, to share best practices which can help save lives around the world, put affected people at the center of humanitarian action, and alleviate suffering.
Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko is to join the Summit on May 23. The politician will meet his counterparts from various countries who gathered to participate in the Summit.
