The UN representative further praised Iran for its advanced emergency planning system, and asserted that Tehran can share its experiences with humanitarian agencies so that they may help governments in emergency cases.
The Iranian Ministry of Interior and the UNHCR cosponsored the 1st International Crisis Management Conference in Favor of Refugees and Asylum Seekers.
