Mr. President,

Distinguished delegates,

A few weeks ago, I was in Bangladesh, at the border with Myanmar - witnessing the most rapid refugee exodus since the massive population movements of the mid-1990s.

It was a stark illustration of what happens when the root causes of conflict and violence are not addressed, and the relationship between a state and some of its people breaks down.

The result is a human tragedy on a dramatic scale.

By Tania Bulakh in Donetsk region, Ukraine @UNHCRUkraine

The conflict in eastern Ukraine may no longer be in the headlines, but humanitarian needs persist. Surrounded by minefields, crossing points are the only way to travel back and forth between conflict-torn areas in eastern Ukraine. For many Ukrainians, this dangerous yet inevitable route is a part of their regular travel routine.

Distinguished Delegates,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

A year ago, States gathered in New York to reaffirm the fundamental values of solidarity and protection for people forced into exile.

They agreed to share responsibility for embedding them in practical action.

And they decided to address and resolve refugee flows through a new model that places the rights, interests and potential of refugees and of their hosts at the heart of a comprehensive response.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Realising this ambition has never been more urgent.
