(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) NEW YORK, Nov 22 (KUNA) -- Finding the root cause for human trafficking will be an essential tool to combat this growing form of abuse, said a Kuwaiti diplomat late Tuesday.
During a UNSC meeting on human trafficking at times of conflict, Kuwait's Permanent Delegate to the UN Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi said that his country issued several laws to prevent human trafficking and other similar crimes from being committed.
Kuwaiti law 91/2013 implements several tenets found in the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, said Ambassador Al-Otaibi about his country's efforts within this regarding, adding that Kuwait commended UNSC resolutions 2331 and 2388, which called on members to fight against this heinous crime.
Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti official touched on forced immigration, saying that this particular dilemma should be handle in the most comprehensive and humane way possible.
Terrorist organizations, such as the so-called Islamic State (IS) and others, carry out human trafficking activities while hiding behind humanitarian catastrophes such as force immigration, said Ambassador Al-Otaibi who indicated that the difficulty lies here in finding the correct methods to detect human trafficking violations.
The Kuwaiti diplomat lauded the UN Strategic Development Goals (SDG) for including human trafficking, as one of the problems that humanitarian must unite against. (end) asf.gta
