KABUL (Pajhwok): Over 320 more Afghan migrants have landed in Canada from Pakistan, says a Canadian minister.

Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Sean Fraser tweeted: on Wednesday: “Today, 324 new Afghan refugees from Pakistan arrived in Canada.”

With the fresh arrivals, the number of Afghan refugees in Canada has reached 24,000.

So far, Fraser wrote, the Canadian government had arranged 19 charter flights to bring Afghan refugees from Pakistan alone.

Following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, the Canadian government has pledged to take in 40,000 Afghans.
