Camp Liberty: Terzi cites serious terrorist act – Un and Eu support for Iraqi refugees key

“This is a serious act of terrorism deserving of the firmest condemnation”, commented Minister for Foreign Affairs Giulio Terzi, referring to the bloody attack on the residents of Camp Liberty in Iraq.

Extending his “solidarity and condolences to the families of the victims, the head of Italian diplomacy expressed the “firm hope that the Iraqi government will assume a sense of responsibility for alleviating the humanitarian emergency and adopt immediate measures to protect the residents of Camp Liberty and ensure their prompt reception abroad”.

“At the same time it is essential”, Terzi underscored, “that the European Union and the United Nations make every possible effort to encourage the Iraqi government to resolve the refugee situation, which risks worsening with every passing day”. “Italy”, Terzi assured, “will continue to do its part”.

Over recent months, eight former residents of Camp Ashraf, some of whom in need of urgent medical treatment, were received in Italy thanks to the coordinated efforts of the foreign and interior ministries.
