Gargash comments on EU Parliament resolution on UAE

posted on 27/10/2012: 1641 views

The EU Parliament has issued a resolution concerning the detainees, conditions of foreign labour and criticising conditions of the women in the UAE and death penalty in the UAE laws.

Commenting on the EU Parliament's resolution, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash described the resolution as "biased and prejudiced resolution which throws accusations haphazardly without substantiating facts on the ground and purposely overlooks the milestones made by the UAE and endorsed by the relevant international organizations, particularly in the areas of foreign labour, comprehensive social care and women's empowerment, and the fact that the UAE represents a society of people of over 200 different nationalities who co-exist in an atmosphere of openness and tolerance." Dr Gargash revealed that the UAE has not been summoned to this discussion and that it requested the EU Parliament to defer discussion of the motion for the resolution to allow for opportunity to express its points of view which would help give accuracy, balance and credibility to the resolution, but the Parliament s procedure made it difficult to consider that request.

"As a result, the final resolution came prejudiced and unfair which impacted its credibility. The resolution adopted unsubstantiated accusations by groups and organizations that made it a top priority to tarnish UAE s reputation," he said.

"The UAE will continue to take all necessary measures to protect its security and stability, on the basis of its institutions, laws and regulations observed." He concluded by saying: "There is no room for leniency when it comes to laws and constitutional foundations no matter what circumstances are." – Emirates News Agency, WAM
