Haqqani said that the human traffickers are encouraging the Afghan youth to leave the country.
Minister of Refugees and Repatriation Khalil Rahman Haqqani warned that human traffickers would be held accountable.
Talking at an event held to distribute food assistance provided by China to vulnerable people, Haqqani said that the human traffickers are encouraging the Afghan youth to leave the country.
“Listen you all, from now on, if anyone is captured engaging in human trafficking and encouraging people to take others outside the country through illegal ways, they will be treated with legal measures,” he said.
Haqqani admitted that the Afghans are struggling with severe economic conditions and said that the Islamic Emirate is making an all-out effort to tackle the existing crisis.
“We are trying to find jobs for our youth and nation by launching projects for our infrastructure, mineral resources and mines,” he said.
This comes as residents complain over their economic condition.
“We call on the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation to provide more aid with the people,” said Shams Rahman, a resident of Kabul.
After the recent changes in the country, the Afghan economy continues to face collapse, with millions of people at risk of starvation.
