UNHCR ready to help Tajikistan swiftly in case of Afghan refugee influx - Adviser

Dushanbe, Oct 11 (UNI/Sputnik) The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is ready to help Tajikistan in the event of an influx of Afghan refugees, including by creating camps for their accommodation, Nodira Akbaralieva, public relations adviser to the UNHCR in Tajikistan, told Sputnik.
"The situation in Afghanistan remains highly unpredictable in terms of the possible influx of refugees and the number of people who may arrive in Tajikistan. If there is an influx of refugees, we can quickly respond and engage our inter-agency refugee emergency response plan and assist the government in accepting and accommodating refugees, including through the establishment of refugee camps," Akbaralieva said.
Akbaralieva also noted that UNHCR recognizes the sovereign prerogative of the states to decide the locations of refugee camps, while advocating that they be located in safe and secure places and remain civilian in nature.
