The UAE continues its efforts to combat the issue of human trafficking through cooperation with partners, said Dr Abdul Rahim Yousif Al Awadi, Assistant Foreign Minister for Legal Affairs, in a statement yesterday, before high-level meetings on improving the coordination of efforts against people trafficking.

“The UAE has contributed to many tangible achievements through commitment and the United Nations Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons”, he said, noting that the UAE also contributed to the establishment of a trust fund to help victims of human trafficking, and the release of the first report on trafficking in persons in 2012, prepared by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Tackling human trafficking, he continued, depends largely on addressing poverty and weakness, as well as on building national capacities to tackle such a crime.
