The forced deportation of Afghan immigrants by the Pakistani government has caused tension between the two countries
International relations experts say that the Pakistani authorities have caused tension in the relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan by forcibly deporting more than one million Afghan refugees without considering international laws and good neighborliness.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)-Kabul: These statements of experts in international relations are being raised that Sirajuddin Haqqani, Acting Minister of Interior Affairs, in a public meeting in Ghazni province, called Pakistan's recent decision to forcefully expel Afghan immigrants from this country unfair. He read and added that Pakistan's authorities have turned all its good officers into bad ones by forcibly deporting Afghan immigrants.

Acting Minister of Interior asked the businessmen of the country to help the returned migrants and to be tolerant with them in selling essential materials and supplies in addition to providing shelter.

Sultan Ahmadi, an expert on international relations, said in a conversation with AVA that the Pakistani authorities have caused tension in the relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan by forcibly deporting more than one million Afghan immigrants without considering international laws and good neighborliness.

He also emphasized that Pakistani authorities are acting against international laws and international laws, because they do not resolve their differences through dialogue, but want to achieve their goals by putting pressure on the Afghan government.

This expert on international relations stated that the government of Pakistan should allow Afghan immigrants to return to the country of their own accord, adding that the authorities of this country should not use immigrants as pressure on the Islamic Emirate, because increased pressure causes tension and the spread of terrorist groups' activities. It happens on both sides of the border.

Ahmadi pointed out that the cause of all instability and insecurity in Pakistan is political differences and bad economic situation, therefore the existing government in Afghanistan has no interest in war and insecurity in Pakistan.

At the same time, Amanullah Karimi, a professor at the university, also told AVA that the claims of Pakistani politicians that Afghan immigrants are involved in suicide and explosive attacks in this country are based on the politics of Western countries, because the interests of these countries are in conflict with the war in the region in particular. 

He also emphasized that Afghan immigrants have and are playing a very positive role in the labor market and economy of Pakistan, on this basis, the economic crisis in this country will increase with the forced deportation of Afghan immigrants.

This university professor said that by accusing Afghan immigrants of insecurity in their country, Pakistani politicians and soldiers want to divert public opinion to another side because of their weak management.

He added that without having documents, they should not accuse Pakistani government officials, immigrants and the Afghan government of being involved in the insecurity of their country.

It should be noted that Pakistan is currently in a very alarming situation and there are no signs of fundamental changes in the country's economic outlook. It is not only the issue of foreign debts, but there is the issue of internal debt that has brought the country close to bankruptcy.

It should be remembered that about two months ago, the government of Pakistan had given 1.7 million immigrants "without residence documents" until November 1 to leave this country. Pakistan has warned that if they do not leave, these migrants will be arrested and deported.

This decision of the government of Pakistan has faced international reactions. In an open letter to the interim prime minister of Pakistan, Amnesty International asked him to cancel the decision to forcibly deport migrants, especially Afghans without documents.
