In a statement to mark World Refugee Day today, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, says things are getting more difficult for refugees around the world.
He stated that some western countries are becoming more nervous about admitting refugees, especially since the September 11th attacks.
The Commissioner stressed that refugees were the "victims of terrorism, not its perpetrators".
An estimated 10 million people were forced from their homes last year because of violence or persecution.
In Iraq alone, 2 million people have become refugees due to the US invasion and occupation.
