Pakistan refusing to allow 30 migrants deported from EU to disembark plane
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan refused on Thursday to allow 30 migrants deported from Greece to disembark from a plane at Islamabad airport, the interior ministry said, a week after high-level talks with the European Union to settle a dispute over forced repatriations.
“On the interior minister’s orders, the FIA has not allowed these illegally deported people and the aircraft crew to leave the plane,” the ministry said in a statement, referring to the Federal Investigation Agency.
The ministry said the 30 were “unverified deportees” who had arrived in Islamabad on a charter flight from Greece.
