Hanafi’s meeting with the United Nations Special Representative in Afghanistan

In an official statement, the Office of the Taliban Administration announced that Yendrika Ratwat, Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations in Afghanistan (UNAMA), met with Abdul Salam Hanafi, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Taliban, on various issues, including the forced deportation of Afghan refugees and the distribution of aid. They have had a humanitarian conversation.

According to Ratwat, the forced deportation of Afghan immigrants by neighboring countries is against international migration laws. He also emphasized that the international community’s humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan continues and the Taliban authorities have been asked to deliver this aid to the citizens of Afghanistan.

The statement further stated that Ratawat continues to welcome “general security and prevention of smuggling, drug trade and use and eradication of administrative corruption”.

Also, Abdul Salam Hanafi has appreciated the humanitarian assistance of the international community to the people of Afghanistan and has condemned the forced deportation of Afghan immigrants from neighboring countries as against all norms.

This statement was issued while last year, the process of forced deportation of Afghan immigrants from neighboring countries, especially Pakistan and Iran, intensified, and hundreds of thousands of immigrants from these two countries returned to Afghanistan forcibly and voluntarily.
