The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Filippo Grande, told – that there are many shortcomings, including mismanagement, in dealing with the 71 million refugees and displaced people in the world. "Some unscrupulous politicians" are exploiting the refugee crisis "for personal political benefits," the UN official said Wednesday (June 19, 2019) in Bonn.

On the occasion of the UN World Refugee Day on Thursday, Grandi said that the refugee crisis will remain in the world for the foreseeable future, adding that one must know that the size of relief programs and assistance to refugees, "for example in Europe, is very small compared to The enormous numbers of refugees and displaced persons in the world ". "When the refugee numbers in 2015 reached a large size, Europe was unable or ready to absorb them and sent wrong signals," the UN official said.

"Some unscrupulous politicians have found that, by posing the refugee problem as a threat to society, they will ensure consensus and get votes," Filippo Grande said. Grandi said the measures to reduce border closures and reject refugees on the border were not only wrong, but ineffective. "The problem does not solve itself this way, it moves to another part of the world."
