The World Food Program (WFP) has announced that alongside over six million internally displaced people in Afghanistan, newly returning migrants from Pakistan are facing an uncertain future.

On Wednesday, the organization stated on its social media platform X, cautioning about the uncertain future of returning migrants from Pakistan.

The World Food Program has emphasized that “they [migrants] have nowhere to go and don’t know how to spend the winter.”

This comes as Pakistan’s decision to expel over 1.7 million “illegal” Afghan migrants from Afghanistan has faced international backlash.

Previously, the United Nations and human rights organizations expressed concerns about the expelled migrants’ situation, particularly with the onset of winter.

Recently, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees expressed concern about the situation of returning migrants, calling for a halt to their expulsion during the winter season.

However, according to reports, since the start of the expulsion process from Pakistan, more than 400,000 individuals have already returned to Afghanistan.
