Afghans returning home willingly: KP chief minister

Afghans returning home willingly: KP chief minister

Oct 02, 2016 - 11:00


PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Most of refugees are willingly going back to their homeland, insists the chief minister of Pakistaninfo-icon’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province -- home to a large number of Afghans.

Pervez Khattak said in an interview Afghan and Pakistani governments wanted the refugees to return home with dignity and participate in rebuilding their conflict-devastated country.

Speaking to a Chinese TV channel, he called the repatriation of Afghan refugees a national and international. Under the UN charter, the federal government is responsible for implementation of agreements on their stay.

The refugees were willingly returning to their country, the chief minister said, spurning political statements regarding the harassment of the Afghan citizens.

Khattak argued the registration of Afghans in Pakistan had become inevitable as unregistered foreigners were creating problems. “We have been hosting them for the last 38 years and will continue to do so.”
