More than 100 former Afghan officials and politicians have returned to the country in the past three months, the Return and Communications Commission for Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures said.
Ahmadullah Wasiq, a spokesman for the commission, said the returnees include former ministers, provincial governors and other political figures.
The commission said that in total, 471 political and former government figures have returned from abroad since May 2022.
Meanwhile, the deputy minister of foreign affairs, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai, at a gathering in Kabul on Sunday called on Afghans to stay in the country and play their role in the development of Afghanistan.
The Commission for Return and Communications with Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures was formed based on a decree of the Islamic Emirate’s supreme leader in May 2022.
