in ASIA/POLITICS by

Pakistan announced  that  1.4 million Afghan refugees  who lost their legal residency status at the end of 2017 have to leave the country in one month.
According to the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations, Pakistan had signed a trilateral agreement with Afghanistan and UNHCR: Pakistan had to extend the validity of the Proof of Registration for the refugees for one year.
The move came after tensions between US and Pakistan about terror groups in Afghanistan. Hafiz Ahmad Miakhail, a spokesman for the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations, said that Afghanistan and UNHCR will rise the issue with Pakistan to extend the of refugees for another year, because the repatriation isn’t possible. Meanwhile, Kabul is urging Islamabad not to use refugees as a political tool.
