Eduardo Stein, joint special representative of the United Nations Organization for Migrant Refugees of Venezuela in Latin America, assured that the region will not be the same as before when the Venezuelan migration crisis ends.

"America Latiná will not be the same again … Around 5,000 people leave every day, and if this flow continues, we will reach over 5 million people by the end of this year," Stein said Thursday.

The UN special representative said that the region was not prepared for a migration like the one that currently exists.

"The governments are with exhausted budgets, with institutional capacities especially in health, food widely surpassed and, therefore, international cooperation is needed more urgently than they have given," he said.

Stein said that the Venezuelan migratory flow will continue for up to two years after the political situation in Venezuela is solved and stressed that Colombia, mainly, must prepare for that situation.
