Following the recent tensions between Iran’s border guards and the Taliban forces at the border zone in the western Herat province, an Afghan delegation is all set to leave for Iran.
The visit of the IEA’s delegation is also days after Afghan refugees’ videos circulated on social media regarding the refugees being mistreated and tortured for no reason by Iranian people and police.
The acting Minister of Refugees and Repatriates Khalilurahman Haqqani said the visit will be carried out in the coming days during which they will try to talk to Iranian officials so that they resolve the difficulties of Afghan refugees residing in the country.
Not only Afghan refugees working as laborers are facing issues in Iran but also Afghan students have issues with extension and issuance of visas, accommodation problems, and employment ones.
Iran is currently hosting up to five million Afghan refugees most of whom moved to the country after the collapse of the previous Afghan government but there have always been reports of mistreatment of the refugees by Iranians.
