SOCHI, October 8. /TASS/. Uncontrolled migration may hamper efforts to develop nations, officials in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), uniting former Soviet republics, say.
Speaking with heads of migration agencies from the BRICS group of emerging economies, Sergey Lebedev, executive secretary of the CIS, said: "Uncontrolled forced migration may hamper efforts of any state in the field of development."
"In most cases, people are leaving en masse and in an urgent manner their permanent places of residence because of military actions posing a real threat to their lives," he said.
"The situation is further aggravated because institutions of state power are being destroyed and the emerged vacuum filled with terrorists," Lebedev added, noting that such a situation can be observed in the Middle East.
"Migration can serve as a transforming power, saving millions of people from poverty and contributing to sustainable development of both countries of destination and countries of origin, but only in the event that protection of migrants’ rights and their civilised integration into a host society are ensured," he said.
Discussions among migration chiefs from the BRICS countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - focused on ways of regulating migration processes, becoming strategically important in the light of recent events in the Middle East.
