Assistant Foreign Minister meets with Assistant Foreign Minister for Human Rights at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of United Arab Emirates in Geneva
The Assistant Foreign Minister, Abdullah bin Faisal bin Jabur Al Doseri, met with the Assistant Foreign Minister for Human Rights at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, Ambassador Ahmed Al Jarman, on the sidelines of the 42 Human Rights Council in Geneva.
During the meeting, the Assistant Foreign Minister welcomed Ambassador Ahmed Al Jarman, noting the Kingdom’s pride of its deep-rooted brotherly and friendly relations with the United Arab Emirates. He also affirmed the enhancement of these relations on various levels for the common interests of the two countries and their friendly peoples.
He also asserted that the State of Qatar, through its media, namely Al-Jazeera, violates all norms, values as well as the international human rights law to spread hatred and ignite sectarian strife in societies and countries, while Doha embraces terrorist elements and fugitives. He also added that Qatar uses Al Jazeera as a platform for extremists and blacklisted terrorists who are wanted internationally, and allows them to spread extremist ideologies, encourage lawlessness and ignite conflicts and strifes between different cultures and races. He also added that while Al Jazeera talks about the importance of freedom of opinion and opinion of others, it’s turning a blind eye to human rights violations in the State of Qatar, including the lack of public, civil and democratic freedoms, restrictions on fundamental freedoms, including freedom of opinion and expression in Qatar, and increasing violations against foreign workers, which has been confirmed by international reports.
