    I was born in Afghanistan, Kabul, but raised in Iran, Khozestan.

    Is this sentence OK?
    I was born in Afghanistan, Kabul, but raised in Iran, Khozestan. I mean, my parents moved/migrated to Iran when I was four.

    I am not sure which one is correct?

    I wish I was born in any country other than my own country.

    I wish I had been born in any country other than my own country.
