புதிய திட்டம் 20,000 ஆப்கானியர்களை இங்கிலாந்தில் குடியமர்த்துவதை நோக்கமாகக் கொண்டுள்ளது..!

The government has launched a new scheme to help 20,000 Afghans fleeing their country to resettle in the UK.

Justice minister Victoria Atkins said more than 5,000 people who left after the Taliban recaptured power would be taken in during the first year.

However, she warned that the UK’s capacity to take people in was not “unlimited” and that prioritising applicants had proved “very difficult”.

Labour said delays to starting the programme had “put lives at risk”.

The Taliban retook control of Afghanistan in August after almost 20 years out of government following the US-led 2001 invasion of the country.

There are huge concerns over the safety of Afghan citizens who worked with or for Western governments, charities and companies during that period.
