“Refugees, Migrations, and of course the heart of the Alliance is the fight against terrorism. How we deconstruct to the mentality and the heart of these fanatics. How to understand that we have different religions, different positions but we have and we should have an understanding and a better relation with each of us.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Miguel Ángel Moratinos, United Nations High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC):
“Why from both sides: from the people who say ‘where are they coming from? Why are these immigrants coming to us? They are taking our posts.’ And then the others say ‘Now I have the right to live. I need to maintain my family.’ So the Alliance can bring certain ideas to make them understand each other. To understand why somebody are rejecting the people. And at the same time understanding why the other side is trying to apply for a better life for the whole relatives and family.”

STORYLINE:

The United Nations High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations Miguel Ángel Moratinos told journalists in New York “the fight against terrorism is at the heart of the Alliance of Civilizations.”

Moratinos said today (31 Jan) the Alliance is trying to understand why some migrants are rejected. He added, “and at the same time understanding why the other side is trying to apply for a better life for the whole relatives and family.”

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) was established in 2005, by former Secretary-General Kofi Annan to explore the roots of polarization between societies and cultures today, and to recommend a practical programme of action to address this issue.

This was Moratinos first press conference since he was appointed as United Nations Secretary-Generals’ new High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations on 20 November 2018.
