Afghanistan’s neighbors have shut their borders to Afghan refugees until western countries offer a guarantee that they will not remain there for more than ten days after arriving.

BBC World Services’ Middle East correspondent Nafiseh Kohnavard has reported that Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Pakistan have closed their borders to Afghans as they are unsure how willing  the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany will be accept the refugees after a brief stay within the first group’s borders. 

They ask for guaranteed approvals from the west especially the US in order to let thousands of at risk Afghans to cross their borders.”10 days is the maximum they can stay before being transferred to other EU countries or wherever the US wants to keep them until they r processed”

The report comes as western countries rush to process and relocate Afghan refugees in the wake of a rushed and dangerous U.S. evacuation effort that came to a close on August 31.
