Afghanistan Has the Most Refugees in the World, Says UNHCR

Kabul – The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has reported that Afghanistan is one of the five countries with the highest number of refugees in the world.

Afghanistan, Syria, Myanmar, South Sudan, and Venezuela are the countries with large populations of refugees around the world, the UNHCR tweeted on Monday, November 22.

These five countries, especially Afghanistan, are also among the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change, the UN High Commissioner stated.

Meanwhile, since the recent changes and the escalation of the economic crisis in the country, thousands of people intend to migrate to other countries.

On the other hand, hundreds of people are now illegally crossing the border into Iran and from there to European countries every day.
