Afghanistan is being asked to intensify efforts to meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of its citizens who have been displaced due to ongoing insecurity in the country.

That recommendation has been made by the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of Internally Displace People (IDPs).

Chaloka Beyani has also urged the international community not to "turn its back" on the country and to remain a strong partner, particularly in areas such as humanitarian support and development.

Mr Beyani was in Afghanistan this month to follow up on the implementation of a policy on IDPs that he helped to institute.

Mohammad Hamed Haleemi asked him about the main outcomes of his visit.
