Iran, Islamic Republic of - ICRC Annual Report 2009

19-05-2010 Annual Report No 2009

The ICRC has been in the Islamic Republic of Iran, with some interruptions, since 1977. It continues work to clarify the fate of POWs registered during the 1980–88 Iran-Iraq war or identified through RCMs. It works to strengthen its partnership with the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran, particularly in the fields of tracing, the promotion of IHL, and mine-risk education. The Iranian committee for the implementation of IHL is an important partner in this process. The ICRC maintains a logistical supply base in the country in support of ICRC operations in the region.
