QATAR SUPPORTS U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL’S EFFORTS TO END TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS

NEW YORK, Qatar has confirmed that it will not hesitate to continue its support, for any effort of the UN Security Council, to put an end to the phenomenon of trafficking in persons, in conflict-affected areas, and to achieve international peace and security in the region and the world.

Qatar stressed that the success of the International Community to end this phenomenon, requires concerted international efforts to address its causes, and foremost, finding just solutions to conflicts and crises, fighting against impunity and completing the principle of accountability.

This came in a statement delivered by Qatar’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani, during the Ministerial-level open debate of the Security Council on Trafficking in Persons in Conflict Situations.

The statement pointed out that, Qatar has supported the United Nations Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons since its launch, and has taken legislative measures to issue Qatari law against trafficking in persons, which criminalises trafficking in all its forms and patterns.

The statement noted to Qatar’s efforts in combating crime as it hosted the 13th Congress on Crime Prevention last year, which resulted in the Doha Declaration and adopted a comprehensive approach to address the crime of human trafficking.

It pointed out that Qatar is one of the biggest supporters of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), as the main UN reference to combat trafficking in persons. The statement also added that Qatar is one of the biggest donors to the United Nations Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons since its inception.
