Over 47,000 Afghan refugees have been repatriated from Pakistan during April to June this year, but now the repatriation process is suspended due to operational reasons. A representative of UNHCR, Muhammad Asif said, here on Monday, that UNHCR-assisted voluntary repatriation of Afghans through Peshawar in North-West Frontier Province has been temporarily suspended. He said that UNHCRs Voluntary Repatriation Centre (VRC) in Hayatabad will remain closed until further notice. Registered Afghans wishing to return home via Hayatabad VRC are advised to check with UNHCR staff before they start the repatriation process, he added. The Afghan refugees could contact the offices of UNHCR in Peshawar and Quetta for information.
