TEHRAN – The head of the UNHCR sub office in Kerman has praised Iran for its generous hosting to one of the largest refugee populations of the world.
 
He made the remarks during a ceremony in Kerman held to celebrate World Refugee Day on Monday. 
 
Each year on June 20 the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) offices around the globe celebrate World Refugee Day.
 
“We should help refugees to reconstruct their lives, and empower them so they can return home with security, dignity, and calm,” the representative of the UNHCR sub office in Kerman said. 
 
The Islamic Republic of Iran has been hosting one of the largest refugee populations of the world serving millions of Afghans and Iraqis over the past 30 years.
