 In 2023-Repatriation of Refugees

Country: Kazakhstan
Delegate Name: Shriya Reddy

This topic is important for the committee to address because it allows all nations to address the challenges and opportunities involved in the process of helping refugees reconstruct their lives. It is important for international cooperation and commitment for this to work successfully. The Republic of Kazakhstan finds this topic to be super important because we are known as a country full of transit and immigration. We are also a host country for asylum seekers and refugees. The Republic of Kazakhstan is aware of many citizens fleeing the country and we are seeking their return home. The United Nations has advocated for refugees and offered life-saving aid and protection to them. The United Nations “ helps refugees UNHCR (also known as the UN Refugee Agency), to help individuals displaced by conflict.”

The Republic of Kazastan condones the reparation of refugees. The states “ A refugee has the right to stay in Kazakhstan and move within the country and abroad with a refugee travel document issued by the Kazakh Government, except the country of his/her origin.” Although many people escape our country, several refugees seek asylum in the Republic of Kazakstan looking for a better future. In 2022, there were 70 asylum applications from refugees from other countries. Therefore we encourage all to return to the Republic of Kazakstan. We will provide individuals with the correct protections and aid. Additionally, the UNHRC refugee agency book about Kazakhstan states that “foreign citizens and stateless persons in the Republic of Kazakhstan shall enjoy the rights and freedoms, as well as bear duties established for the nationals unless otherwise provided by the Constitution, laws and international treaties.”

The Republic of Kazakhstan recommends all refugees return to their homes with the help of the UN. Since we are a host country for refugees, we are willing to work with other nations to bring refugees to our country. We would gladly welcome them in until they can go back to their home country. We understand the hardships refugees go through and we will do everything in our power to help them return to their homes.
