Iran May Expel Afghan Refugees As US Tightens Sanctions

A senior official from Iran's Foreign Ministry has said millions of Afghan refugees will be expelled from Iran if the sanctions on Tehran are increased.

According to Iranian officials, more than three million Afghan refugees are living in Iran with over two million of them working in that country.

In an interview with Iran’s IRNA news agency, the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Sayed Abbas Araghchi said Iran would ask the Afghan refugees to go home if sanctions are increased, adding that the migrants annually send three to five billion Euros to Afghanistan.

Araghchi said: “468,000 Afghan students are getting education freely in Iranian schools and every student costs 600 Euros on an average basis.”
