Iraq new ID in Arabic and Kurdish language  21.10.2009 



October 21, 2009

BAGHDAD, 'Iraq', Iraq signed a memorandum of understanding with Thales French defense group on Tuesday to establish a central database holding important information about the country's citizens.

The project is the first phase of plans for a massive national identity card scheme that aims to replace four different types of paper documents currently used by Iraq's 30 million citizens.

"The price of the project is 12.4 million dollars, to complete the first phase," the Iraqi interior ministry said in a statement.

Although the ministry said a contract had been agreed, a source close to the deal said the two sides had only signed a memorandum of understanding.

It was not immediately clear when a contract might be signed, but the ministry statement said work on the project would begin next year and would last six months.

Iraq announced the identity card system in July, with the intention for the scheme, which is expected to cost 300 million dollars in total, to be operational in about two years.

The ministry did not clarify at the time of the announcement, however, if an individual's data would be electronically implanted on the new plastic card,

The new system will be used by men, women and children nation-wide and the data written on the identity cards will be imprinted in both Arabic and Kurdish.
