Delegation of UNHCR in BiH visits Una-Sana Canton

BIHAĆ, February 13 (FENA) – The Una-Sana Canton Prime Minister Mustafa Ružnić at today meeting with representatives of the UNHCR delegation in Bosnia and Herzegovina announced the continuation of successful cooperation, that is, this year’s activities regarding the situation with migrants and refugees in this part of the country.

“We held yet another in a series of preparatory meetings for the expected migrant surge in the coming months. Taught by two years of experience, we will continue to work closely and try to preserve the dignity of migrants on their journey to their desired destination. We will focus on protecting vulnerable categories and unaccompanied minors,” said the USC Prime Minister Mustafa Ružnić.

One of the topics was the provision of more adequate living conditions for unaccompanied minors, who are currently housed in the Bira reception center.

“We have discussed the possible relocation of unaccompanied minors currently housed in the Bira reception center to the reception centers outside the USC area. We will have to do this to protect them, and to provide them with better living conditions,” said the Cantonal Prime Minister.

The UNHCR delegation at the meeting in Bihać was led by the newly elected Head of Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lucie Gagne.
