Islamic Emirate: Afghan Refugees in Better Condition in Iran After Talks with Officials

AT News

KAUL: The Islamic Emirate on Sunday said that the situation of the Afghan refugees have become better since the negotiations were conducted over the issue with the country’s officials.

Earlier, the Iran Foreign Ministry announced that it had suspended its consulate services after the Afghans staged protests in reaction to the report of Afghans’ mistreatment by Iran.  

Meanwhile, a number of Afghans based in France held a gathering to protest the Afghans’ misconduct in Iran.  

They called on humanitarian organization to address the problems of Afghan refugees in Iran.  

“We Afghans gathered here to raise our voice to the international community. We really love peace. We are oppressed people. Why are they oppressing us. There have been various oppressions in Iran,” said Shah Rasul Oriakhail, a protestor.  

This comes as the Islamic Emirate said that the situation of the Afghan refugees in Iran has become better since it held talks with Iran’s ambassador in Kabul.  

“The officials of the Islamic Emirate had repeated contacts with Iranian officials regarding the Afghan refugees. The situation of the Afghans is good in Iran now,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.  

Earlier the videos, which went viral on social media- showing Afghans being harassed in Iran, triggered a public outcry inside and outside Afghanistan.
