UN urges Pakistan to resolve the Afghan refugee status
February 28 , 2016
Status of more than 2.5 million unregistered Afghan refugees hangs in balance after their registration cards expired more than 2 years ago. As per United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) records, Pakistan hosts the world’s largest long-term refugee population, pre-dominantly those from Afghanistan. UN has urged Pakistan to take this as priority and resolve their status at the earliest.
