AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: The Iranian Supreme leader, Ali Khamenei said on his twitter account on Saturday evening that from now onward no Afghan children should be deprived of education in Iran—a country that barred Afghan children from going to school.
Iran’s second and current Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei said all Afghan children, including illegal refugees must be given right to get regular admissions in Iran’s government and private schools.
“No Afghan child in Iran, not even illegal immigrants, should be deprived of education and schools must enroll them,” read the tweet.
This is for the first time the Iranian leadership is taking an extra ordinary initiative to allow the Afghan children to meet their fundamental right of education on Iran’s soil. Till the moment hundreds of thousands of Afghan families are in Iran as refugees and a large number of children were not given the right to get education in Iranian educational institutions.
