“Government committed to pave the way for the return of Afghan refugees.”

During the 29th anniversary of Soviet forces withdrawal from Afghanistan President Ghani announced that the government is committed to bring changes in its priorities to pave the way for the return of the refugees.

President also emphasized that all Afghan refugees in Pakistan should return back to Afghanistan in next  24 months.

President Ghani further added that the government does not want the issue of the refugees remain an excuse for the Pakistani authorities.

Iqbal told reporters that around three million refugees still reside in Pakistan emphasizing that no one should expect that the country would be able to certify those involved in the cross-border terrorist activities.
