Afghan repatriation from Iran nears 400,000
"The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has announced that the number of Afghans who have returned to their homeland from Iran is approaching the 400,000 mark, IRNA quoted the press here on Saturday....
Iranian officials have put the number of Afghan refugees in the Islamic Republic at two million, saying all will be repatriated in the next three years.
The accord further requires returning Afghans to pass through either the Dogharoun or Milak border checkpoints in Iran's northeastern province of Khorassan and southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan, respectively....."

I believe that It's better for both Iranians & afghans, because afghans were not really in comfort & most of them had to work very hard with a little money & also many Iranians were not satisfied that they were here...anyway, today we Iranians that before this though Afghans as poor refugees should envy that they'll have a nice & free land...
