Quoted @antonioguterres

I'm very concerned about the situation in Tigray.

International humanitarian law must be respected by all parties.

I urge Ethiopian leaders to do everything possible to protect civilians, uphold human rights & ensure humanitarian access.

#Ethiopia #Tigray
@antonioguterres also calls for the free and safe movement of people searching for safety and assistance, regardless of their ethnic identity, across both national and international borders.

The #COVID19 pandemic has exacerbated the plague of violence against women, especially when confined in their own homes. They need protection and help to escape, get justice and heal.

Physical distancing slows the spread of #COVID19.
Keep at least 6ft/2m distance between yourself and others to reduce your risk of infection.

Quoted @FilippoGrandi

The @UN General Assembly has re-elected me High Commissioner for Refugees until 30 June 2023.

I am humbled, and grateful to Secretary-General @antonioguterres for his support.

My UNHCR colleagues and I will keep working hard with refugees, displaced, stateless people worldwide.

Great news for the uprooted people of our world and for all @Refugees staff and humanitarians tirelessly working alongside @FilippoGrandi to help them.
