Statement attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on Migrant and Refugee Children

As a matter of principle, the Secretary-General believes that refugees and migrants should always be treated with respect and dignity, and in accordance with existing international law. Children must not be traumatized by being separated from their parents. Family unity must be preserved.
