Erbil (Kurdistan24) – Kurdistan Region’s Interior Minister Rebar Ahmed announced during his speech at the opening ceremony of the Joint Crisis Coordination Centre (JCC) project that the Kurdistan Region will be the ninth entity globally to adopt this system.

The ceremony was held in Erbil on Thursday, June 6, 2024, under the supervision of the Minister of Interior, relevant KRG ministries, and foreign envoys.

Minister Ahmed highlighted the significance of the JCC as a new achievement supported by multiple countries.

He stated, "The establishment of the Joint Crisis Coordination Centre (JCC) project presents a new opportunity to standardize international experiences, provide enhanced protection to our citizens, offer more services, raise awareness about illegal migration, increase youth access to legal employment in other countries, and familiarize our youth with international experiences."

He reiterated that the Kurdistan Region will be the ninth jurisdiction to implement this system.

Minister Ahmed also referenced the establishment of the national return system last year, which is utilized in over 100 countries.

With the support of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Ministry of Interior successfully implemented this system in the provinces of Duhok and Erbil, aiding citizens returning from abroad to reintegrate into Kurdish society swiftly.

"The development of the system continues, and soon it will be implemented across all other provinces and autonomous administrations of the Kurdistan Region to serve citizens," Ahmed stated.

He also mentioned ongoing improvements in the Migration Agency's operations within the Kurdistan Region. This includes the installation of an electronic system and the involvement of international experts to prevent and reduce illegal migration, thereby ensuring the safety of citizens.
