More than 60,000 Afghan Migrants Expelled by the Iranian Government in One Month

Bayan News – Iranian media have reported that over the past month, more than 60,000 Afghan migrants have been expelled from Iran.

Majid Shojai, the commander of the border guards in Khorasan Razavi Province, stated to the Mehr news agency that these individuals were residing unlawfully in Iran.

He added that every Afghan national must enter Iran legally and, upon the expiration of their visas, they must leave the country.

However, it is said that in the past two years, approximately one million Afghan citizens have migrated to Iran.

Furthermore, the Pakistani government has also expelled over 500,000 Afghan citizens who had entered the country illegally in recent months.

This action by the Pakistani government has drawn international reactions, with most international organizations considering it contrary to human rights values.
