TEHRAN, May 14, 2007 — Iran has agreed to slow down a drive to expel illegal Afghan residents to their home country.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mehdi Safari said President Mahmud Ahmadinejad has agreed to repatriate Afghans in a “gradual and orderly way.” Safari spoke at a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul a day after Iran said it had expelled 85,000 illegal Afghan refugees in the past three weeks.
