With the start of cold season for the residents of temporary camps in Jordan-Iraq borders, UNHCR asked neighboring countries to help the refugees. Jordan is the only country who has accepted refugees after US-led war on Iraq. "Shetin Brooni", representative of UNHCR in Jordan, said that his organization has talked with different sides to end the problems of around 1500 refugees who are entangled in no man's land. He stressed that it was not easy for Jordan to accept these people at such political atmosphere, and we praise this move by Jordan. He said other neighbors also should help Jordan. UNHCR is preparing itself for a cold winter in the region. This organization said "fortunately we had a good preparation for summer and it passed." UNHCR could get refugee license from U.S., Australia, Canada and Scandinavian countries for 70 political refugees who had fled Iraq after the U.S. war. Brooni asked Arab countries to accept the refugees who have no place to stay. These refugees are mostly students, skilled workers and intellectuals. UNHCR is trying to solve the problem of 1150 refugees who are mostly from Iranian opposition groups, Kurds and Mojahedin-e khalq. Some of them lived past 20 years in Iraq with the help of ousted dictator Saddam Hussein. So far, more than 100 Iranian Kurds have been able to go to France and western countries. Most of them are opposing Iran and don't like to return to their countries.
