Iranian interior minister: Hundreds of thousands of refugees deported

Iran’s Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi says Tehran has deported some 400 thousand illegal migrants to their own countries.

Vahidi however said there are not enough deterring rules to dissuade them from returning Iran.

He added that this problem must be resolved through proper means.

Iran is already hosting millions of Afghan refugees including many that entered the Islamic Republic following the 2020 takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban.

Iran has repeatedly called on the international community to help it handle the issue but it has yet to receive assistance from foreign countries.
