Migrants, refugees deserve to be happy
Migrants and refugees deserve to live a good life, Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov said in his address to participants at the Eurasia Economic Forum on April 6. Migrants and refugees are not numbers. They are humans. They deserve human dignity and to be happy. It is a must for us to behave them humanely,” he said.
The wave of forced migration affects everyone and as the number of arrivals increase, the capacity of Europe to accept them is shrinking, Ivanov added. “If states do not cooperate, crime will also rise. Human trafficking will rise. Those who think similarly should cooperate,” he said, adding that the recent terror attacks in Ankara and Istanbul point to a “new situation” for Europe.
