AAN at 6 March 2018 Vienna event: “Afghanistan in Pakistan”

AAN < 1 min

Pakistan has hosted millions of Afghan refugees over decades. 2016 it began, however, to push them out in masses. The deported Afghans return into a country with a  catastrophic security situation.  Their situation will be discussed on a podium which includes AA’s Jelena Bjelica.
