On September 9, 2021, on the instructions of President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, our compatriots in Afghanistan set foot on the homeland. The charity event was organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Compatriots Fund. As the saying goes, "Every Kazakh is my only one" ,all citizens support the arrival of compatriots.
"As you know, the Center for Information Support of Compatriots, established under the Compatriots Foundation, has compiled a list of about 1,200 compatriots living in Afghanistan. The list includes compatriots who have immigrated from Afghanistan and who have contacted the Contact Center. The list was compiled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and then sent to the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Kabul. A special commission has been set up at the Embassy to address the complex issues. Nowadays, 35 of our relatives have been proved to be Kazakhs, their documents have been processed by the commission and they have reached their historical homeland safely. "Our compatriots were met at the Almaty airport by employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Compatriots Fund and other relevant agencies," said Magauiya Sarbasov, Vice President of the Company.
The work on repatriation of compatriots will continue in the future. A special commission set up by the embassy will develop a plan to support the dispatched compatriots and consider ways to quickly resolve the issue.
