Interior Minister: 2,000 illegal Afghan refugees enter Iran a day

Tehran, Aug 12, IRNA – Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said on Wednesday that 2,000 Afghan refugees enter Iran illegally a day.

He made the remarks on the sidelines of trilateral meeting of ministries of health, Welfare and Interior to consider insurance services for the Afghan nationals.
Rahmani Fazli said that after deporting from Iran, 2,000 refugees return to Iran again illegally tolerating a lot of pain.
He said that Iran has no responsibility for those who enter the country illegally, but those who come to Iran possessing passport and authorization are like our own citizens and they receive services.
The insurance service covers the Afghan refugees whose stay in Iran is legal and those without permission will have no advantage of insurance service and will be deported.
