Turkish authorities are stepping up efforts to block any refugee influx from Afghanistan | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “Turkish authorities are stepping up efforts to block any refugee influx from Afghanistan | DW News” – below is their description.

Afghans who manage to make the weeks-long journey

through Iran on foot to the Turkish border face a three-metre

high wall, ditches or barbed wire as Turkish authorities step up

efforts to block any refugee influx into the country. The

beefed up border measures in Turkey, which already hosts nearly

4 million Syrian refugees and is a staging post for many

migrants trying to reach Europe, began as the Taliban started

advancing in Afghanistan and took over Kabul last week.

  • In This Story: Iran

    Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

    Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

    Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

    The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
