State Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Jana Costachi participated jointly with employees of the General Inspectorate for Migration and UNHCR representatives in a technical meeting on the measures undertaken during the implementation of the temporary protection on the territory of the Republic of Moldova.

The discussion focused on topical issues and aimed at strengthening the implementation process of temporary protection and supporting the information campaign on granting temporary protection to displaced persons from Ukraine.

The problems identified within the National Commission for Migration and Asylum have been also specifically mentioned and viable solutions for the successful implementation of the Action Plan on Temporary Protection have been proposed.

At the beginning of the meeting, the participants agreed that the joint working teams would carry out field visits to inform as many beneficiaries of temporary protection as possible about their rights/obligations and about the need to acquire legal status in the Republic of Moldova.
