MEHWAR: 2 Million Afghans Return Home In Three Years
The Minister of refugees and repatriation, Sayed Hussain Alemi Balkhi, said on Monday it was initially expected that over a hundred thousand Afghans were to be deported from the European countries in 2017.
However, as a result of efforts by the government and other international organizations, only a few hundred were sent back to Afghanistan during this period.
He said that this year over 750 Afghans were sent back to Afghanistan, compared to the figure of only 580 migrants in 2015.
In this episode of Mehwar, host Masoud Malik discusses the topic with Ali Fakoor, a civil society activist and Maryam Wahid an activist from Germany.
