UAE is a valued partner of the United States: Mitchell

posted on 18/01/2007: 617 views


The UAE is a valued partner of the United States on economic, security and human rights issues, according to US Senator George Mitchell.



Asked about his view of the current situation in Dubai, which has recently come under attack from lawyers in the United States for alleged abuse of camel jockeys, Senator Mitchell said: "The United Arab Emirates and Dubai in particular, have given birth to a truly modern, urban and tolerant Arabic society of the 21st Century.



Dubai has achieved miraculous economic growth and opportunity for its citizens while showing deep regard for social and human rights issues that continue to trouble countries around the world.”



The leaders of the UAE, he said, should be commended for the way they have responded readily and effectively to social problems. "A good example is the government's remarkable partnership with UNICEF to locate, care for and repatriate underage camel jockeys.



This program has been justly praised by the international community as a model solution to a serious problem that can and should now be applied elsewhere in the Gulf Region", he said. That same ingenuity and commitment is now being applied to workers' rights and other issues, he concluded. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
