The Commission on Human Rights of the Iraqi Refugee Union asks Finland to stop sending Iraqi and Kurdish refugees to their country. This is in accordance with the agreement reached between the two countries previously.

Fadhil al-Ghazzawi, a member of the Human Rights Commission in Iraq, met with member Peter Sandlin, representative of the Finnish National Organization on the suspension of the forcible and forcibly sending Iraqi refugees from their country.

Al-Ghazzawi said the refugees were sent or deported according to the 1951 Refugee Agreement.

On the other hand, Nofal Baha Musa, the Iraqi Minister of Displacement and Migration, pointed out that the forced return of refugees is rejected without the necessary reason and confirmation to send them as refugees and displaced Iraqis in the country where they are settled.

At the time of the previous year, the Finnish National Organization for Migration decided to agree with the Iraqi government on the return of Iraqi refugees and refused their request for asylum.
