Germany's Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said today the rising number of Afghan asylum seekers was "unacceptable", as he urged young citizens of the south Asian nation to stay at home and rebuild their homeland.

"Afghanistan is in the second place of (asylum seekers') origin countries in the current month and also for the whole year. That is unacceptable. We are in agreement with the Afghan government that we don't want that," De Maiziere said.

"There is an increasing number of citizens from the middle class, also from Kabul, and we are in agreement with the Afghan government that young Afghans from middle-class families should stay in their country and rebuild it," said De Maiziere. (AFP)
