UAE: Arab Parliament Rejects EU Resolution on Human Rights in UAE

Arab parliament has expressed their dissent against the European Parliament’s resolution on Human Rights record of the United Arab Emirates. The Arab Parliament emphasised that the resolution contained factually false information about human rights in the United Arab Emirates. The Arab Parliament stated in its statement that it is not within the European Parliament's mandate to examine the human rights records of any Arab country since it lacks the legal or political authority to do so. The statement went on to describe the UAE as a leader in human rights, noting that there are a number of local entities in charge of human rights concerns in the UAE, all of which adhere to international norms recognised and accepted by the UN. The Arab Parliament further called for positive dialogue and appealed to the EP to adopt a constructive approach.
