The Canadian government has previously announced that more than 20,000 refugees from Afghanistan will be accepted, 5,000. The Afghans were expelled by the United States.
In recent weeks, Canada, which completed its mission in Afghanistan in 2011, has expelled 3,700 people from Kabul, leaving only military trainers there.
Of these, 2,000 are Afghans and their families who have assisted Canadian soldiers and diplomats in the past.
The administration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who announced early elections on the day the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, has been criticized for its slow and insufficient expulsion from Kabul.
According to a PostMedia / Leather Marketing survey released last week, about 54 percent. Canadians think Ottawa should have acted fast to help the Afghans.
Yesterday, during the Ottawa campaign, Trudeau Canada announced the addition of 20,000 previously announced. Afghans who have already left the country – including women and LGBT leaders, human rights activists and persecuted journalists – will receive 5,000. The people of Afghanistan were expelled by the United States.
“We want to welcome the Afghan families who helped Canadians, the people who fought for justice, the rights of the LGBT community, women and journalists,” Trudeau said.
The Canadian government hopes to help Afghans who want to emigrate from their homeland as long as the Taliban allows.
“Afghans must immigrate safely and freely with travel documents to other countries,” said Foreign Minister Mark Carnegie.
