United Nations Suggests Roadmap to Complete Relocation of Camp Ashraf Residents

    Baghdad, 24 July 2012 – The United Nations in Iraq has presented a “Roadmap” to the Government of Iraq and the residents of Camp Ashraf that suggests a series of steps to complete the peaceful relocation of residents to Camp Hurriya. عربي  كوردى

    The relocation process from Camp Ashraf to Camp Hurriya has come a long way since February 2012. Two thirds of the residents have already moved.

     In order to facilitate the remaining moves, leading to the closure of Camp Ashraf, the United Nations calls on the residents to start the preparations for the next move without delay. The United Nations has asked the Government of Iraq to be generous when it comes to the humanitarian needs of the residents and to continue to seek a peaceful solution to this issue under any circumstances.

    The Roadmap has been designed to address the concerns of both the residents and the Government of Iraq. It outlines preparations to be made and a step-by-step approach for the relocation. It addresses issues such as water and power supply and other humanitarian needs.

     “Our commitment is strictly humanitarian: To facilitate a voluntary temporary relocation of residents to Camp Hurriya as a first step of resettlement to countries outside Iraq,” the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq, Mr. Martin Kobler, said.
