Camp Liberty Residents Relocated to Albania

The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Martin Kobler, welcomed the relocation of a first group of 14 Camp Liberty residents to Albania.

“The residents’ arrival in Albania late last night is an encouraging first step in the relocation of the group of 210 residents the Albanian government has agreed to receive,” Mr. Kobler said.

“Their departure from Iraq is in accordance with the memorandum of understanding of 25 December 2011, which foresees the relocation of the residents to third countries,” he added. “I thank the Government of Albania and encourage other Member States to come forward and to receive residents in their countries as well.”
