  • Pakistan PM to Offer Citizenship to Afghans Born in Pakistan

Afghan refugees born in Pakistan will be offered citizenship, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday in a dramatic change of policy that could benefit of hundreds of thousands of marginalised people.

Imran Khan's British national friend and political advisor Sahebzada Amir Jahangir has said that he's not interested in any ambassadorial role but will be working towards taking investment to Pakistan to make "Naya Pakistan".

"The government should also grant citizenship to all those refugees who've been living here since 1980", he said, also voicing concern over how their children could live in Pakistan if the government deports their parents. At times, Kliment said the military has also tried to use refugees as a bargaining chip in the country's tense relationship with Afghanistan's government.

About 2.5 million Afghans, many of whom fled their homeland after it was invaded by the Soviet Union in 1979, live in Pakistan, home to the world's second-largest refugee population.




He said the refugees have been unable to find decent legal jobs or get a quality which eventually forces them to indulge in criminal activities. If a person is propped up by the Army, the army still rules.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan left for Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, the foreign office said, amid speculation he may be seeking economic assistance from a staunch ally instead of another International Monetary Fund bailout. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made clear India's expectations from Islamabad, when he had urged in a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan that he should help foster a terrorism-free South Asia.

In his first address to the nation, Prime Minister Khan had emphasised on cutting government expenditure. "We look forward to working closely with the government of Pakistan on this issue in the coming weeks", said Dan McNorton, spokesman for the agency in Islamabad.
