During the visit, we discussed the challenges and the gaps and passed an immediate aid budget… I remind you, that the responsibility to return them to their homes safely rests with us. The responsibility is to take care of all their needs until they are returned to their homes, I will do everything I can to provide them with practical solutions and to remove bureaucratic barriers.”
