     Today, Friday, the Ministry of Displacement and Migration identified six challenges facing the return of displaced persons to their areas of residence, while confirming that it will start implementing a program of integration and camp closures, respectively.

     Ministry spokesman Ali Abbas told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): “There is a plan that was sponsored by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhmi and Minister of Immigration, Ivan Faiq, that included several measures.  And to express their opinion and the possibility of knowing the challenges that have prevented their return so far. "

     He continued: "As for the second procedure, it is to accurately read the security, political and service scene in the return areas, and this depends on an effective field survey, in coordination with the administrative units, as well as the security authorities holding those lands."

     He added, "After combining this plan with this reading, we got results and in light of them, the program of integrating and closing the camps will be implemented in turn, in a way that satisfies all parties," stressing that "the ministry is against forced return, but with safe return and services available in the return area."  .
