DAR ES SALAAM adidas neo lite racer udsalg , Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- The UN refugee agency willnext week start repatriating about 12,000 Burundian refugeessheltered in Tanzania's western region of Kigoma, a tripartitemeeting between Tanzania, Burundi and the UN High Commissioner forRefugees (UNHCR) agreed on Thursday.

A statement issued at the end of the one-day 19th tripartitemeeting in the east African nation's commercial capital Dar esSalaam said the refugees who have volunteered to return home willbe repatriated from September 7 through December this year.

The meeting chaired by Tanzania's Minister for Home AffairsMwigulu Nchemba requested the World Food Programme (WFP) to providefood for the returning refugees in Burundi for three monthsbeginning September.

The meeting also appealed to the international community toprovide necessary support for the voluntary repatriation processincluding support for the local communities in Burundi.

Nchemba said the government was not forcing the Burundianrefugees to return to their country explaining that the refugeeshad volunteered to go back home on their own volition.

"No one has forced them to get back to their country. They havebeen self-motivated and what Tanzania is doing is to facilitatetheir safe return home," said Nchemba.

He said Tanzania was aware that the situation in Burundi wasstable and allowed for the voluntary repatriation of therefugees.

Chansa Ruth Kapaya, the UNHCR Country Representative forTanzania adidas neo udsalg , thanked the governments of Tanzania and Burundi for theirjoint interest and keenness to respond to the request by therefugees to be assisted to return voluntarily to Burundi.

Kapaya also appreciated the hospitality and generosity of thegovernment of Tanzania which has been host to thousands of refugeessince its independence in 1961.

Today Tanzania hosts some 350,000 refugees and asylum seekers,of whom 256,850 have arrived from Burundi since April 2015.

On July 20, President John Magufuli called on the Burundianrefugees now in the country to return home voluntarily and helpbuild their country, asserting that now there was security in thetiny central African country.

Magufuli's remarks were in support of an earlier plea byBurundian president Pierre Nkurunziza adidas løbesko dame udsalg , who had called on his fellowcountrymen to go back home and help rebuild their country becausethe "war is over."

Magufuli also took a swipe at international humanitarian bodiesfor trying to convince refugees not to return to their homecountries because of continued insecurity, just so they cancontinue receiving aid from donors.

The President also directed the Ministry of Home Affairs not togrant citizenship to any more Burundian refugees coming intoTanzania.

In June this year, the UN refugee agency said Tanzania remainedthe largest host of Burundian refugees.

Tanzania is currently home to more than 315,000 refugees andasylum-seekers, mainly from Burundi and the Democratic Republic ofthe Congo. They are hosted in three refugee camps of Nyarugusu,Nduta adidas løbesko udsalg , and Mtendeli, which face severe pressure.

On Sunday, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)appealed for 23.6 million U.S. dollars from now through to Decemberthis year to be able to continue meeting the food and nutritionalneeds of refugees in Tanzania.

The world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hungerworldwide said in a statement that it has been forced to reducefood rations for 320,000 refugees in Mtendeli, Nduta and NyarugusuCamps in northwest Tanzania as a result of funding shortfalls.

WFP provides refugees, primarily from Burundi and the DemocraticRepublic of the Congo adidas gazelle dame udsalg , with five food commodities of maize meal,pulses, super cereal, vegetable oil and salt.

"Due to funding shortages, all five commodities were reduced forthe August distribution, reaching only 62 percent of the 2 adidas gazelle udsalg ,100required kilocalories which is the recommended daily calorieintake," said the statement.

"Without an immediate response from donors, further ration cutswill be necessary as food stocks are simply running out," said WFPTanzania Country Representative Michael Dunford. Enditem

Line 4 of Rio Metro trains are now carrying her from Copacabana to Barra and back. They are comfortable rides, according to her.

The compartments have "better air conditioning , more space and bright lights," she said.

Further, "It is more convenient now, I can read books and review lessons in the train instead of cursing the traffic. I even feel that the distance has already been shortened," said Moreira.

"I am aware that all the trains of Line 4 are manufactured in China, they are much more advanced than the old trains of Line 1 and Line 2 adidas sko udsalg danmark ," she added.

Opened to the public before the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Line 4 has a total length of 16 kilometers and five stations. A one-way trip takes 13 minutes. All the trains of this subway line are produced in the Changchun Railway Vehicles Corporation in northeast China, a subsidiary of China's rolling stock manufacturer CRRC.

According to Daniel Habib, managing director of Rio Metro, Rio Metro's cooperation with the CRRC started in the year 2009.

Both sides are satisfied with the result of their longtime partnership, he said adidas sko dame udsalg , hence Rio Metro is confidence in the Chinese company and its contract with the CRRC for the Olympic games line.

"We found that the quality of the trains was beyond our expectation when the CRRC sent us their products in 2009," said Habib.

"We thought there would be a rough time for these trains to get used to the local environment. Luckily, things went quite smooth. Then we immediately decided to enlarge t.
