Kabul seeks global assistance to Pakistani refugees

KABUL, Jan 3 (Pajhwok Afghan News): The Afghan government has sought emergency aid for hundreds of Pakistani families which recently fled deadly sectarian violence in Kurram Agency and took refuge in the southeastern Khost and Paktia provinces.

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry told a news conference here on Thursday the unrest in the neighbouring country in the wake of former premier Benazir Bhuttos assassination could prompt more Pakistanis to arrive in Afghanistan.

Sultan Baheen pointed out the Afghan government had provided humanitarian assistance to some of the 600 Pakistani families that migrated from Kurram and Waziristan to Khost and Paktia. But the Pakistani families need more help from the international community.

The government had approached the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and UNHCR to give immediate aid to the refugees, he added.

In response to a query, the spokesman alleged the expulsion of Afghan refugees from Iran was violative of agreements signed with that country. Kabul received no formal information from the Iranian government with regard to the eviction of the Afghans, he argued.

Baheen revealed Afghan officials met Kabul-based Iranian diplomats on Wednesday and told them the reported ouster of refugees was contrary to pacts between the neighbours. "The problem should be resolved through negotiations and we hope the process will be suspended until the end of winter."

According to media reports, Irans interior ministry has warned the Afghans illegally living in Iran will be arrested and may be jailed for five years. Last years large-scale eviction of refugees from Iran led to the sacking of the minister concerned by Afghan Parliament.

Baheen told a questioner Foreign Minister Dr Rangin Dadfar Spanta would leave for Madrid in mid-January to attend a conference of civil society organisations. The minister has formally been invited to the moot by the Australian prime minister.
