Pakistan has decided to return all Afghan refugees living in the country illegally.
The interim federal cabinet has given the go-ahead to repatriate around 1.1 million Afghan refugees living in the country illegally.
This is a big decision that was taken due to the current tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The Pakistani government says there are 1.1 million Afghan refugees living in the country illegally.
Nearly a million Afghans have arrived illegally in Pakistan since the Taliban took over Afghanistan.
They say that most of these refugees are involved in activities and crimes against the State, so they will be repatriated as soon as possible.
The Afghan Taliban government has been informed of Pakistan’s decision.
Pakistan has been hosting millions of Afghan refugees for many years. At one point, there were five million Afghan refugees living in Pakistan.
Currently, there are still around four million Afghan refugees living in Pakistan, but only a few of them have valid refugee cards.
The crackdown on illegal Afghan refugees is due to tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan over the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
It is generally believed that Pakistan is cracking down on illegal Afghan refugees because the Afghan Taliban is unwilling to take action against the TTP.
Last week, a group of Pakistani officials went to Kabul to meet the Afghan Taliban government and ask them to take action against the banned organization.
The Afghan Taliban said they would take some measures to prevent the TTP from being a threat. However, Pakistani officials are not sure whether the Afghan Taliban will keep their promise, because they have made similar promises in the past.
Pakistan’s decision to return illegal Afghan refugees will likely provoke a reaction from the Afghan Taliban government and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
UNHCR does not agree with the policy of forced repatriation of refugees.
