Ottawa: October 28, 2021

In an interview with the Canadian Press, Ambassador Hassan Soroosh outlined the urgent humanitarian needs in Afghanistan and highlighted the need for scaling up and speeding up the international response to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and economic collapse in the country.
Ambassador Soroosh expressed his gratefulness to the government of Canada for the new commitment in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan as well as for showing leadership in expanding the resettlement program for Afghanistan.
While expressing concern over the challenge of brain drain in the long-term, Ambassador Soroosh expressed hope that with measures such as increasing the frequency of commercial flights from Afghanistan as well as increased processing capacity in the region, more people at risk will be able to benefit from the resettlement programs in Canada.
Ambassador Soroosh also highlighted the importance of a broader international mechanism to monitor and document human rights violations in Afghanistan.
Ambassador Soroosh stated that the Embassy in Ottawa and Afghan Consulates in Toronto and Vancouver remain committed to continuing their operations.
