World Refugee Day
In conjunction with the celebration of World Refugee Day a few days ago, the Egyptian state adopted successful and effective policies and vision in dealing with the refugee issue, in light of its keenness to abide by international conventions.
Regardless of who they are, people who are forced to flee must be treated with dignity.
This day highlights the strength and courage of people who were forced to flee their homeland to escape conflict or persecution.
The celebration of the day affirms the solidarity with more than 70 million refugees and asylum seekers who have been forced to flee wars and violence in their countries to other countries.
