UN Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution, and child pornography Najat M'jid Maalla commended yesterday efforts being made by the UAE to combat crimes related to sale and abuse of children.

At a meeting yesterday with Noura Al Suweidi, Director of UAE General Women's Union (GWU), the UN official also lauded achievements generated by programmes launched by the GWU for protection of child rights in the UAE. Al Suweidi briefed the UN official on the UAE initiatives for developing child's abilities and legislations guaranteeing their rights.

She was also updated on efforts to establish the higher council for maternity and childhood and the GWU's partnerships with the UNICEF to devise a national childhood strategy.

Later, the UN Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution, and child pornography toured various departments of the GWU where she familiarised herself with the pre-oil era handicrafts in the UAE. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
