Pakistan’s national security adviser said Wednesday that his country could no longer accept Afghan refugees for several reasons, including financial constraints. Pakistan is no longer ready to accept refugees, Moeed Yusuf said at a press conference in the capital Islamabad. He said Pakistan has already accepted more than 3 million Afghan refugees who have fled the war and violence in their country over the past few decades. Mr Yusuf said Pakistan will try to do whatever it can to help Afghanistan, but should step up its international efforts to prevent a humanitarian crisis. He urged world society not to repeat the mistakes of the past of abandoning Afghanistan.
Yusuf also warned that other militants, including the Pakistani Taliban, who sought evacuation across borders with Islamic State groups, could exploit such a situation. You don’t have to think too much to know what will happen. There is a security blank. You already know that ISIS is there, the Pakistani Taliban is there, and al-Qaeda is there, he says, and these groups are enemies of both Pakistan and Western oaths. He added that there is. He said that if Afghanistan destabilized the spillover effect, it would bring it to Pakistan. Yusuf also urged the international community to engage constructively with the Taliban for regional peace and stability. (AP).
