Currently, about six million Afghans live in Pakistan and Iran, and both countries have said they are not prepared or want to receive more refugees. So the Afghans who manage to leave their country and get around the closed border posts do not stay in these two countries, but continue on their way.
From Iran they go on foot to Turkey , where the government, on the line that separates them from the Persian country, is building a wall at full speed . If they manage to enter Turkey, this will not be the final destination. The Turks have experience in this, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan , the Turkish president, already warned last week: ” We are not the warehouse of Europe .”
But the massive influx of Afghans to the Turkish border has not yet occurred, and the majority of Afghans trying to leave their country are still blocked at its borders , which are closed. Only people with passes from other countries get out of them: people who were unable to be evacuated at the Kabul airport, which is now closed.
Biden defends fiercely and without self-criticism the exit from Afghanistan “The next two or three months are key. We are afraid that there will be an increase in jihadist attacks on our border with Afghanistan,” an anonymous Pakistani official told his country’s press on Wednesday.
“The Taliban are trying to fill the void left by the collapse of the Afghan Administration, and the international community must assist them in reorganizing their army to control their territory,” this Pakistani official continued. Pakistan has been the Taliban’s main international supporter for decades . The group, in fact, was incubated in Pakistani territory in the 1990s.
