Overall, 3,5 thousands of the 7 thousand Afghan refugees displaced in Uzbekistan were registered in the UNHCR Office in Uzbekistan. Head of the UNHCR Office Abdul Karim Gul informed that the official status got only 2700 Afghan refugees. He noted that the process of status definition is complicated enough. As known, the persons, connected with terrorism should not be included in the refugee list, therefore the registration demands attention and caution. The situation in Afghanistan gradually improves. Mr. Gul stated that they render assistance in returning of Afghanistan citizens to their homeland. Last year 151 people returned from Uzbekistan to Afghanistan, and the process goes on.
