New York - The UAE has reiterated its commitment to fully cooperate with the United Nations and other regional efforts to fight the piracy off the Somali Coasts. It called for addressing the real causes of this dangerous issue through restoration of security, rule of law, peace, development and stability in Somalia.

This came in a statement delivered by Ambassador Ahmed Abdul Rahman Al Jarman, UAE Permanent Representative to UN before the liaison team tasked with tackling the piracy, in a meeting held at the UN headquarters in New York.

"Despite its convenience about relative decline in number of the piracy operations, armed burglary and abductions that target vessels off the Somali Coasts and Aden Bay in the recent months triggered by the military interventions and coordination among the naval forces, the UAE is still worried as the piracy continues unabated", he said, citing that the pirates have recently extended their operation zone to cover over 1000 nautical miles in the Indian Ocean and off the Somali Coasts.

Al Jarman underscored that the UAE regrets the continuation of detention of 389 hostages by the pirates in Somalia, stressing its support to the local, regional and international efforts to release them. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
