Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Tehran: Abdullah Mobini, head of the National Migration Organization, said in a meeting with "Stefan Prizner", the resident coordinator of the United Nations in the Islamic Republic of Iran, that the country is determined to reform its asylum system. He also added; If more financial support from the United Nations is not allocated to Iran in 2024, and the discriminatory and dual view of the international community continues in the field of hosting nationals, the world will witness a change in the policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran towards foreign nationals.

Unfortunately, these sanctions have left a very negative impact on the lives of foreigners, especially in the field of health and treatment.
Mobini reminded: Just when the Islamic Republic of Iran, as the main country, hosts a large population of Afghan refugees, it is in need of providing medical and health equipment and items in the field of diseases that cannot be accessed due to the cruel sanctions, unfortunately, we are witnessing not only action International organizations are not effective in neutralizing these sanctions, but every year the least amount of financial aid is allocated to Iran by international organizations, especially the UN offices.

Iran will be towards foreign nationals.
