GENEVA, 18th December, 2018 (WAM) — A delegation of the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace led by Ahmed bin Mohamed Al Jarwan, Council President, today participated in the eleventh High Commissioner’s Dialogue on Protection Challenges in Geneva.
The discussions were dedicated to the protection and assistance of refugees, IDPs and stateless persons in urban settings, with a particular focus on cities.
According a statement issued by the Council’s Media Office, Al Jarwan presented a vision on addressing refugees-related issues to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees that is based on a belief that the lack of tolerance in various world communities is the cause behind the outbreak of violence, terrorism and ethnic conflicts that triggered the displacement of million of peoples around the world.
He underlined the necessity of promoting the role of the civil society in addressing the critical issues involving the rights of refugees around the globe.
Al Jarwan applauded the UNHRC efforts and underscored the Council’s readiness to support all endeavours made to ease the suffering of refugees and resolve their status.
