The meeting dealt with the sixth priority area of the Istanbul Ministerial Declaration on a Silk Routes Partnership for Migration, namely international protection.
Many countries in the region are among the main refugee hosting countries. In addition, the current refugee influx towards Europe is putting additional pressure on both countries of origin and destination. Against this background, the objective of this meeting was– through exchange of information, experience, good practices and know-how – to establish priorities for the concrete operational and technical implementation of the Silk Routes Partnership in the field of international protection.
