MOSCOW, 1st September, 2023 (WAM) - The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) called on Friday for the urgent creation of a humanitarian corridor in Niger to ensure the delivery of the necessary aid to the region and help over 710,000 displaced persons in the country, Sputnik reported.

"IOM strongly advocates for the authorities to establish a humanitarian corridor to enable the Organisation to organise the safe, dignified and voluntary return of vulnerable migrants stranded in Niger to their countries of origin," IOM Regional Director Christopher Gascon was quoted as saying in a statement.

Gascon also believed that the corridor would "facilitate the delivery of aid" to the country's regions affected the most by the recent events.
