Iraqi Government: European countries forcibly deporting Iraqi refugees

European countries are forcibly deporting Iraqi refugees against the Iraqi government’s wishes, according to a AK News story. The Iraqi government has objected to these deportations, citing concerns about the weak economy and the political nature of some deportations.

In the meantime, two international airports in Kurdistan have refused to accept forcibly deported Iraqi refugees.
