Expressing deep concern over the exodus of Afghans, the minister warned that those who travel to Europe illegally could face any number of problems, including death, along the way.
“The families that send their children already know the problems facing the migrants,” Balkhi said, asking the youth to be patient because “there is a possibility of losing your life while travelling illegally [to Europe].”
This comes as the Hungarian government announced that from Tuesday, its police will either deport the refugees that illegally cross the borders or arrest them and put them in prison.
Thousands of Afghans are reportedly fleeing the country these days due to the high rate of unemployment and insecurity.
In order to leave the country, migrants are forced to spend thousands of dollars and risk their lives and that of their families.
