Among other matters, both sides also touched upon the humanitarian support extended by friendly nations, the ongoing collaboration between the Ministry and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), and the forthcoming renewal of the Letter of Agreement (LoA) between the Ministry and UNOCHA.
Addressing challenges, they deliberated on internal visa concerns faced by OCHA personnel and the implications of the expiration of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with pertinent ministries on humanitarian partners’ operations.
