Feb 19, 2018 - 09:04

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon has approached global donors for funding to enhance the repatriation grant for Afghan refugees, the state-run news agency has reported.

In an attempt to accelerate the voluntary return of Afghan refugees, Islamabad intends to double the grant from $200 to $400 per refugee, the Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) said.

The repatriation grant for returnees had been increased to $400 per returnee by the UNHCR in 2016. However, it was slashed back to $200 in 2017.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of States and Frontier Regions (SAFRON)has urged the Afghan government to launch developmental projectsfor returning refugees.

According to APP, 800,000 unregistered refugees have been documented under the Afghan Citizen Card (ACC) project. They will be repatriated with assistance of the International Organisation for Migrationinfo-icon (IOM).

Repatriation of registered Afghan refugees is guided by the principle of voluntarism and gradualism as embedded in Tripartite Agreement among Pakistan, Afghanistaninfo-icon and UNHCR.
