The delegation also met with the governor of North Darfur, Maj Gen Malik Khojali, in El Fasher. He urged the community leaders and camp residents to cooperate with the IOM registration teams.

The governor also stressed that the state of North Darfur has facilitated the voluntarily return of displaced people to their areas of origin by creating areas for voluntary return and enhancing security and stability there.
