The possibility of placing Afghan refugees on the territory of Central Asian countries for humanitarian purposes cannot be ruled out, but the decision remains with the countries of this region. This statement was made by the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Andrei Rudenko.

"The right to decide what to do with refugees from Afghanistan primarily belongs to the countries of the region", - he said in an interview with TASS.

"Indeed, they expressed concern that the influx of refugees could lead to an increase in the risks of terrorist threats, the Deputy Minister noted. - Therefore, they were very careful about this topic.

But nevertheless, as far as I understand, cases of placement of some categories of Afghan refugees for humanitarian purposes cannot be ruled out. But this, once again, is the competence of the Central Asian countries".
