Afghan Refugees voluntarily repatriation to kick off

ISLAMABAD: Afghan refugees repatriation from Pakistan has become another issue between the governments of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Pakistan wants the refugees to go back to their home while Afghanistan says it's yet not in a position to take back refugees.

However the Voluntary repatriation of Afghan refugees from Pakistan will resume from the 3rd of next month.

UNHCR spokesman said, “The process was briefly suspended in November last year due to winter season.”

A center has been opened at Chamkani near Peshawar to register refugees who are willing to return to Afghanistan. UNHCR is providing four hundred dollar to each returning refugee along with other items.

According to the spokesman, three hundred and eighty thousand registered Afghan refugees returned to Afghanistan last year.
