UN Secretary General warns against countries that block migration

UN Secretary General warns against countries that block migration

Governments across the world are inflicting needless economic self-harm by creating barriers to migration, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Thursday.

Guterres presented a report to the General Assembly on ways to address the plight of the 258 million global migrants, some of whom are trapped in legal limbo.

For the secretary general, three important factors to be taken into account by the Member States in the definition of a strategy: a humanitarian approach focused on defending human rights, financial resources to define the status of migrants once the first humanitarian aid has been provided and finding credible options for migrants, who can not claim refugee status while being unable to return to their country of origin. But migration should be an act of hope, not despair, he said.

The present report has been prepared pursuant to General Assembly resolution 71/280, in which the Assembly requested the Secretary-General to present a report as an input to the zero draft of the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration and related intergovernmental negotiations.

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres highlighted the contributions of migrants around the world and called for the development of global policies that protect them and guarantee safe journeys.
