Pakistan continues to deport Afghan refugees

Eviralnews, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan, denied the report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees regarding the suspension of the deportation process of Afghan refugees from Pakistan and emphasized that the deportation process is still ongoing.

Baloch clarified: “The plan to return undocumented immigrants is still standing and is being implemented in a regular and step-by-step manner.”
