AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: Head of the United Nations High commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Filippo Grandi said that the UN refugee agency would host 4-way meeting on the problems being faced by the Afghan refugees.
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and the European Union (EU) would attend the talks, he told Iranian news agency IRNA Tuesday evening.
However, the date and venue are yet to be firmed up, but he said that participants will explore solutions to permanently resolve the problems that for long time the Afghan refugees are facing.
It is worth mentioning that, UNHCR High Commissioner who visited Afghanistan on World Refugee Day, urged the international community to redouble efforts to find lasting solutions to Afghanistan’s complex and rapidly evolving displacement crisis.
This is a problem we cannot ignore, Grandi said, adding that despite growing insecurity and other challenges, there are opportunities to provide lasting solutions for the growing numbers of internally displaced families and pave the way for the eventual voluntary return of refugees remaining in neighboring countries. He stressed UNHCR’s continued commitment to the 2.4 million remaining Afghan refugees in the region, as well as his agency’s intention to renew efforts to find durable solutions for the country’s estimated 1.2 million internally displaced people in partnership with the Afghan government and humanitarian and development agencies.
