Taliban accuses Pak of humiliating Kabul with immigrants’ expulsions


Afghanistan’s Taliban-appointed Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amir Khan Muttaqi, has accused Pakistan of humiliating Kabul through the expulsion of immigrants, as reported by the news agency.
Muttaqi mentioned that despite their concerns being communicated to Pakistani military and foreign affairs officials, no action has been taken to halt the deportation. He asserted that Pakistan’s deportation of immigrants is an attempt to exert pressure on Kabul but emphasized that Afghanistan will not yield to such pressure.
Muttaqi expressed his concern about Pakistan’s unilateral decision to deport Afghan refugees and migrants. He said the despite sharing their concerns with both civilian and military authorities in Pakistan, the decision to expel these vulnerable populations remains in effect, further straining the already complex relationship between the two neighbouring countries, as per the news agency.
Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) has raised alarms about the severe problems and dangers faced by a significant number of Afghans forced to leave Pakistan.
Recent statistics indicate a significant flow of people returning to Afghanistan. Approximately 174,000 people have returned through the Torkham, Gholam Khan, and Angoor Ada crossings, while another 45,000 have returned via the Chaman-Spinboldak crossings.
