After concerns about the transferring of goods and assets of Afghan refugees from Pakistan, the Chargé d'affaires of the Islamic Emirate in Islamabad met and discussed with the Interior Minister of Pakistan's interim government about the transferring of capitals of the Afghan refugees.
The Embassy of the Islamic Emirate in Islamabad on X said that the Pakistani military also emphasized the appropriate treatment of Afghan refugees.
Meanwhile, the Chamber of Commerce and Investment (ACCI) said that the Islamic Emirate should create a regular solution to transfer the assets of Afghan refugees to Afghanistan.
"All over the world there are laws and regulations on the transfer of assets. Afghans have the right to transfer all their assets and equipment to Afghanistan. The Ministry of Industry and Commerce is working on a plan on how to transfer Afghans assets to Afghanistan which are in factories or in other areas," said Mohammad Younus Momand, first deputy of the Chamber of Commerce and Investments.
“We seriously ask the Islamic Emirate to talk to Pakistan so that this investment does not get ruined. One part of the assets is in Karachi and our second part of assets is the available documents, the available list, and the available assets. We do not have just factories there, our vehicles are there, our apartments are there, our shops and businesses are there, our hotels are there, we got services from them and we invest in them,” said Khan Jan Alokozay, head of the Joint Chamber of Commerce of Afghanistan-Pakistan.
Earlier, the Interior Minister of the Interim Government of Pakistan said that migrants can take 50,000 afghani with them.
The acting Minister of Refugees and Repatriations also wants to transfer all Afghan refugees' assets to the country.
"They have to follow the rules. Forcibly detaining, destroying their camps, seizing their assets and not allowing them to have 30,000 to 50,000, our demand is that they should not do these things,” said Khalil Rahman Haqqani, acting Minister of Refugees and Repatriations.
A number of economic analysts believe that transferring Afghan assets from Pakistan to Afghanistan will be beneficial for the development of investments in Afghanistan and for economic growth.
“The opportunity should be provided for professionals to come back because they are better trained in Pakistan and play an important role in trade and economic development and the Islamic Emirate has to build a regular mechanism for the invested factories,” said Mohammad Nabi Afghan, the economic analyst.
Earlier, the Joint Chamber of Commerce of Afghanistan-Pakistan said that those Afghans who live in Pakistan have invested in various sectors worth $3 billion.
