Portugal welcomes 23 new refugees


According to the voluntary resettlement programme of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), 23 citizens benefiting from refugee status in Turkey and Egypt arrived in Portugal yesterday.


Seven families from Iraq, Sudan and South Sudan were welcomed in Braga. So far, 530 people have arrived in our country under the voluntary resettlement programme of UNHCR and the European Commission. Among them, 245 were from Egypt and 285 were from Turkey. 


With the unremitting efforts of the central government and local authorities, as well as public and private entities, the admission and integration of refugees has always been a government priority and has been recognized by the United Nations, the International Organization for Migration, the European Union and the Council of Europe. 


By supporting the European Commission’s proposal to build a common European asylum policy based on responsibility and solidarity based on respect for human dignity, Portugal has transformed this priority into Portugal’s active participation in European efforts to welcome refugees.
