Afghan Refugees Perform at South Korean Public Event

A number of Afghan refugees in South Korea appeared in public Wednesday (13/10), for the first time since they arrived in the country in late August.

Upon arrival in South Korea, the refugees were placed in government facilities in Jincheon, about a two-hour drive from the nation’s capital.

After a 14-day quarantine period, the refugees received training to prepare them for social integration.

At a justice ministry event that was covered by the news media, refugees were seen playing soccer or walking around the running track of a sports stadium while children participated in the activities of a Taekwondo group.

The ministry said it was working on revising immigration laws to grant F-2 long-term residence visas to refugees.

Currently, Afghan refugees live in the country on visit visas. [ab/uh]
