Refugee crisis: Theresa May to demand action at UN summit

Baku, September 19, AZERTAC

Theresa May will take part in a summit on refugees and migration at the United Nations headquarters on Monday, according to The Independent.

US President Barack Obama and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will also appear, and both want to ensure meaningful progress is made on the issue as their terms of office near completion.

The talks will focus on a ‟more co-ordinated approach to managing migration, to better protecting refugees and being able to help them and also deal with some of the challenges that countries face from the scale of migration we have seen”, UK officials said.

Ms May will be accompanied at the meeting by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and International Development Secretary Priti Patel. She will also meet US business leaders and hold talks with counterparts from around the world, as she hopes to show the UK remains an important global player after the vote to leave the European Union.
