Later, chief of the Service said that our country has witnessed the problems caused by forced migration as a result of the occupation of our lands for 30 years and in 2020, after the liberation of our lands from occupation, the rights of internally displaced persons displaced from their homelands to return to their home were restored, which created new challenges related to dignified return and reintegration processes.
Then, exchange of views on the topic was conducted.
