This is the first European country to make such a decision, contrary to the position of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which requested that the protection to migrants is maintained.

Last year, 94 of 273 cases did not get a residency permit in Denmark, according to the latest report from the Danish Migration Service, which dates from January and adds that some refugees were interned in detention centers.

The UNHCR maintains the protection of Syrian refugees and asks that they are not forcibly returned to Syria, according to a communiqué released on Thursday.

Syria has been a victim of an imposed war for ten years that has so far cost thousands of human lives and has caused economic losses worth more than 500 billion dollars.
