Saturday’s Yomiuri said the GOJ plans to offer via the UNHCR and the World Food Program medical support, food, and other humanitarian assistance to Afghans fleeing to Iran based on the judgment that helping Afghan refugees stranded in their homeland will be difficult for the foreseeable future due to the turmoil there. In order to continue supporting displaced Afghan people inside the country, the GOJ is set to press the Taliban to ensure the safety of international aid workers who are still in Afghanistan.
