Danish Refugee Council calls for equal access to vaccines for all countries and groups of people who need it – including refugees, asylum-seekers, migrants, and internally displaced persons.
Statement by the Danish Refugee Council’s Secretary General, Charlotte Slente in a reaction to the designation of Ansar Allah in Yemen as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the U.S. State Department.
The decision by The US Department of State to ask the Congress to designate Ansar Allah – sometimes referred to as the Houthis – as a Foreign Terrorist Organization will have serious implications in Yemen and on humanitarian programming that aims to bring relief to what is repeatedly being described as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
The end of the year saw new displacement due to incidents in breach of the 1991 ceasefire agreement, raising renewed concerns regarding the prospects for a solution to the crisis. A long-term solution to end the 45-year-old Western Sahara conflict must be found.
