DP William Ruto co-chaired a session on International Action and Co-operation on Refugees and Migrants and issues related to displacement at the UN General Assembly in New York.
Kenya has played its role in ensuring there is peace in the East Africa region. It is incumbent on the international community to demonstrate solidarity with the regional efforts towards peace and tranquility. Our efforts to resolve the humanitarian crisis must be tied to the universal aspiration to transform our world.
Ruto urged the UN to support Kenya’s decision to close the refugee camp and also disburse the funds it pledged for the exercise under the Tripartite Agreement between Kenya-Somalia-UNHCR signed on November 10, 2013.
