Kyrgyzstan plans to prepare for mass influx of refugees

29/02/16 13:57, Bishkek – 24.kg news agency, by Anastasia BENGARD

Kyrgyzstan plans to prepare for a mass influx of refugees. Amendments to the law have been discussed today at a meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Social Affairs, Education, Science, Culture and Health Care.

The bill defines the internal procedure of interaction of the state bodies in cases of emergency mass influx of refugees. According to representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the adoption of the amendments will not require additional costs from the budget.

"I am very interested in it. Statistics show an increase in the number of refugees. We can assume a certain growth in the cost of their accommodation and maintenance. If a there is an emergency, the mass arrival of persons, what agency has funds for it in the budget?" the deputy Natalya Nikitenko asked.

"The scheme of receiving refugees has been approved by order of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic in 1996 and has the secrecy. But as the authorized body, we have a certain margin," representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations assured.

 "There are a lot of tension points all around the world. And Central Asia is not an exception. People can come for different purposes. We're talking about the threats of terrorism and extremism ... There is a procedure in order a person can prove that he is a refugee. Where have you removed the procedure of granting refugee status? This important point should be returned," Natalya Nikitenko added.

People's representatives also asked whether there is a threat of mass influx of refugees in Kyrgyzstan. If so, from what countries, and whether it poses a threat to the local population, as it is in Europe.

 "Today's situation in Afghanistan is not a secret. It poses certain challenges and threats," representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said shortly.

Kyrgyzstan is currently a home to about 170 refugees, most of them are from Afghanistan, 50 - from Syria, 2 - from Iran and 10 - from Ukraine. Previously, UNHCR reported that Kyrgyzstan has updated its plan for a mass influx of refugees. It provides assistance in housing, food, health care, water supply and others. Kyrgyzstan, which joined the United Nations International Convention on the status of refugees, has an obligation to help them.

The bill was supported following the discussion.
