Promise Background
More than 5.7 million Afghan refugees have returned to Afghanistan since the current voluntary repatriation operation started in 2002. However, there remains a large number of Afghan refugees in Pakistan's South Western Quetta city living in poor conditions and vulnerable to abuse and extortion. During his pre-election campaign in Kandahar, President Ghani committed to bringing back all Afghan refugees from Pakistan’s Quetta city."

Indicators to Measure Progress
  • 1. Programs initiated by the NUG to repatriate Afghan refugees from Quetta city
  • 2. Number of Afghan refugees safely repatriated from Quetta city

May 2015: In an official visit to Afghanistan, UNHCR Head, Antonio Guterres, said that an agreement has been reached between Pakistan, Afghanistan and the UNHCR to provide an enhanced package of support to those returning under the voluntary return refugee program.

He said that the government was preparing two key proposals that would act as guidelines and that government had informed him that a revision of the current process was being carried out and that integrated strategies would be implemented."
