The Foreign Ministry of Taliban announced that China has pledged to assist Afghan migrants expelled from Pakistan with ¥100 million in various sectors.

Hafiz Zia Ahmed Takal, the deputy spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of Taliban, stated in an interview with media outlets on Friday, April 19th, that China has expressed readiness to aid returning migrants from Pakistan.

According to the spokesperson, Chinese authorities raised these remarks during the third meeting of the political deputy ministries of the foreign ministries of China and Afghanistan.

The report outlines China’s commitment to provide ¥100 million to support migrants facing forced expulsion from Pakistan in sectors such as cardiac care facilities and educational scholarships.

Following extensive reactions from Pakistani media outlets on Monday, April 15, reports emerged about the second phase of forced expulsion of “illegal” migrants and refugees from Pakistan.

Reports suggest that approximately 800,000 Afghans will return to their country in the second phase of the Afghan migrant expulsion from Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Médecins Sans Frontières and several human rights organizations have expressed concerns since the beginning of the second phase of Afghan migrant expulsion from Pakistan.

In a statement, Médecins Sans Frontières mentioned that for many Afghans, this return entails packing their belongings and transporting them by horse, donkey, motorcycle, or group travel to a country currently grappling with widespread poverty, inadequate health services, and increasing restrictions on women.
