UAE statement on 2013 US report on human rights

The UAE is actively engaged in the global campaign against trafficking in persons. We have established shelters to provide safe refuge, health and psychological care as well as social support to women, men and children who are victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.


The UAE, through the National Committee to Combat Human Trafficking, will continue to implement our national strategy based on the ?Five Ps? of prevention, prosecution, punishment, protection and promotion of international co-operation, and to report annually on progress.


We take pride in our achievements but we are never satisfied with the status quo. The UAE will continue to strive to improve respect for human rights regardless of the criticism because human rights are part of the values that motivate us.
