West should open borders: UN

June 18, 2012

Crises around the world forced record numbers of people to flee their countries and Western countries should help the developing world deal with the influx by accepting more refugees, the United Nations says.

Last year, conflicts in Africa, the Middle East and other regions forced 800,000 people to leave their countries, the highest number since 2000, the office of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres said.

Including people who were displaced in their own countries, that number rose to 4.3 million. Conflict in Syria, Sudan and Mali did not make this year look better, Guterres told reporters

now urging countries to relax and open border policies especially for refugees. LI encourages an eventual open system through democratic and treaty process.
