Minister of Interior and Municipalities Raya Al-Hassan received a delegation from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, headed by Mireille Girard.
Minister Al-Hassan told the delegation that she would issue a circular to mayors to urge them to do more in registering the births of the children of the displaced, as per the relevant cabinet decision.
The delegation, in turn, informed the Minister of Interior that through the efforts exerted by the Commission and the decisions of the Council of Ministers within the framework of simplifying registration, and due to cooperation with the Ministry of Interior, the rate of registration of births of displaced Syrian children rose from 21 percent to 50 percent. It was decided to make greater efforts to speed up the registration so as to include current births.
