On trouvera ci-après le message du Secrétaire général de l’ONU, M. Ban Ki-moon, tel qu’il a été prononcé à Tunis par M. Michael Møller, Directeur général par intérim de l’Office des Nations Unies à Genève, à l’occasion de la cérémonie de commémoration de l’adoption de la Constitution de la République tunisienne et du troisième anniversaire de la Révolution de la dignité, le 7 février:
More than 42 million people around the world have been forcibly displaced from their homes and communities. More than a million fled their countries in the last eighteen months alone due to a wave of conflicts, in Cote d’Ivoire, Libya, Mali, Somalia, Sudan and Syria. These numbers represent far more than statistics; they are individuals and families whose lives have been upended, whose communities have been destroyed, and whose future remains uncertain.
World Refugee Day is a moment to remember all those affected, and a time to intensify our support.
