Negotiations are underway on relocating several thousand MKO members from a camp north of Baghdad to another location in Iraq, officials said on Friday.

The European Union, meanwhile, urged further cooperation between UN negotiators and Iraqi officials in "difficult" efforts to close Camp Ashraf, which has hosted members of the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) since the 1980s.

Iraqi authorities have decided to close the camp by the end of 2011.

"The primary and overall responsibility to deal with the situation in Camp Ashraf lies with the government of Iraq within its sovereignty," Martin Kobler, the UN secretary general's special representative for Iraq, told AFP on Friday.

"In agreement with the government, we are in continuous contact with all parties, including the residents of the camp and the members of the international community to facilitate a peaceful and durable solution," Kobler said.

"In this, I count on the full cooperation of the government of Iraq, the Camp Ashraf residents and the international community. International humanitarian standards and human rights have to be respected."
