Deputy Prime Minister Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi welcomed the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and her accompanying delegation to Afghanistan, and said 43 years of conflict has affected all, but especially women and we pay serious attention to education, economic, health, and all other sectors to improve the lives of Afghans.

Deputy Prime Minister said, "Our policy is that we do not allow any group or individual to threaten anyone's security from the Afghan territory and all those foreigners who want to live in Afghanistan, must live according to the refugee laws."
