Ministry of Migration and Displacement clarified on Saturday, the details of the return of more than 1,000 Iraqis from Turkey, while confirming the government moves to bring back all IDPs in Turkey to the country.
“The issue of operating flights from Turkey is not a new one, and is more than two years old. The Ministry of Migration and Displacement is working in coordination with the Iraqi Ministry of Transport and through the Iraqi embassy in Ankara and the immigration office inside the embassy, as well as in cooperation with the security systems in force in the region,” said Immigration spokesman, Ali Abbas Jahangir, to the Iraqi News Agency (INA).
Jahangir added, "The government calls, through the Iraqi embassy in Ankara, every Iraqi who wants to return, especially those who entered Turkey during Daesh terrorist gangs control over Nineveh and took its lands as a safe haven for them, to review the embassy and issue passports to help them return to Iraq at the expense of the Iraqi government,”
“The Iraqi embassy organizes trips and sends the lists through the security system to the concerned security services, after which these lists, names and addresses are approved, and then sends a signal or a notice for their entry through Ibrahim Al-Khalil port, fundamentally, and they are subject to inspection, scrutiny and coordination by the security services represented by the leadership of West Nineveh operations, joint operations, national security and all other agencies,”
