Time right for return of Afghan refugees: Pakistan


ISLAMABAD: Despite challenges, there is growing cordiality in relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan, which has contributed to increased engagement between the two countries, including on the issue of refugees, which saw the Afghan Minister of Refugees and Repatriation Sayed Hussain Alemi Balkhi, in Islamabad recently.

Syed Tariq Fatemi, Special Assistant on Foreign Policy, while speaking recently in a seminar at the National Defence University, said the time had come for repatriation of refugees when the enhanced stability had given Kabul the confidence to take ownership of the return of refugees.
