The Ministry of Interior is keen to boost cooperation and coordination with the European Union in various security fields with particular emphasis on fighting human trafficking, a senior UAE official affirmed.

'The UAE is among the first countries in the region which issued a federal law on combating human trafficking,' Lt. General Saif Al Shafaar, Interior Ministry Undersecretary, said yesterdayduring a meeting with consuls of the EU accredited to the UAE, led by Consul of Spain in the UAE Vicente Cacho.

He told the EU diplomats that the Ministry has set up several specialised units for human rights and trafficking in persons and social support shelters for victims of these crimes.

'By doing so, the UAE has become a key reference to other countries seeking to draw lessons from its experiment in this respect, he added.

During the meeting, the two sides explored mechanisms for exchange of expertise and information between the Ministry and EU on fighting the crime and benefit from the EU experiments in this field.

Consul of Spain in the UAE Vicente Cacho commended the substantial efforts the UAE is making in combating the human trafficking and expressed his hope for broader UAE-EU cooperation in fighting the crime.

Later, Colonel Khamis Al Ka'abi, Deputy Chairman of Interior Ministry's Committee for Combating Human Trafficking, gave a presentation on efforts and measures the Ministry has taken to fighting the crime and promoting values of human rights. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
