"In order to find a durable solution for the camp residents, it is essential that potential third countries indicate their willingness to receive them for resettlement," Ban said in his latest report to the Security Council on the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged nations to accept residents of a camp of Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) in Iraq that Baghdad has vowed to close by the end of the year, according to a report released on Monday.

"In order to find a durable solution for the camp residents, it is essential that potential third countries indicate their willingness to receive them for resettlement," Ban said in his latest report to the Security Council on the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Ban said he and other senior UN officials "have been encouraging member states in this regard." The UN Security Council was to review Ban's report at a meeting on Tuesday.

Last month, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said she would urge EU member states to accept residents of Camp Ashraf, a base of MKO, which mounted attacks on Iran before the U.S.-led removal of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in 2003.

The EU removed the MKO from its terrorism list in 2009 but it is still considered a terrorist organization by some countries, including the United States and Iran.
