Interim government extends Afghan refugees' stay in Pakistan
The federal cabinet under the chair of caretaker Prime Minister Justice (r) Nasir-ul-Mulk discussed, in detail, the issue of extension in stay of the Afghan refugees.
Under a trilateral agreement signed with Afghanistan and the United Nations, Pakistan has issued Proof of Registration (PoR) cards to the Afghan refugees who are registered with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
The UNHCR’s official data suggests that near 1.4 million registered Afghan refugees are still residing in Pakistan while more than 2.5 illegal Afghan immigrants are also residing in the country and continue to pose serious security challenges.
