TEHRAN, May 19 (MNA) – Representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in the Islamic Republic of Iran Ivo Freijsen said that services rendered by the Islamic Republic of Iran in the field of immigrants are ‘exemplary and unique of its kind’.

He made the remarks on Sunday in his meeting with the governor general of Kerman province.

Living condition and livelihood of refugees in the Islamic Republic of Iran in sanctions period is one of the major concerns of UNHCR, he said, adding, “effective steps have been taken in this regard in order to prevent negative consequences of sanctions on refugees living in Iran.”
