Martin Kobler, Special representative of the UN Secretary General for Iraq, on Thursday urged the EU Member States to receive the Camp Ashraf's residents in Iraq as refugees.

"My message goes to the governments of EU Member States because the final purpose of the whole exercise to move people from one camp to the other for them to undergo the refugees' status determination is to bring them abroad," Kobler told a press conference in Brussels this evening.

"And so far the answer of (EU) Member States to receive the Camp Ashraf's residents as refugees, once recognized in their host country, was not that enthusiastic. And my appeal goes also to Member States, then at the end once they are refugees, to take them into their countries and to give them a live and freedom and liberty in their countries," he added.

Camp Ashraf was until 2009 under the control of the US military, but has since been controlled by the Iraqi Government.

On 25 December, the Iraqi Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding organizing the transfer of the Iranian dissidents to a transit location near Baghdad Airport, Camp Liberty.

]Also,[ Ambassador Dan Fried, US Special Advisor for Camp Ashraf told the press conference that people from Camp Ashraf need to be considered individually.

"And to make determinations about any specific individual we need to know more about them and such information can be obtained only after they moved to Camp Liberty and participate in the UNHCR status determination process, " he added.
