EU fights against human trafficking together with Azerbaijan

Human trafficking contradicts the values of the European Union and we fight against it, Kestutis Jankauskas, Head of the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan told AzVision.az.

The revenues from this area are on the third place after the arms and drug trade. The EU has certain strategies to completely eliminate crimes related human trafficking. Unfortunately, migrants are potential victims of human trafficking. Despite the implementation of some strategies, the number of women and children victims is increasing in the EU countries and Azerbaijan."

Azerbaijan takes commitments in fight against human trafficking and the country takes measures to realize them, the EU official said.

The EU has launched a new project in enhancing the fight against human trafficking. For this, we closely cooperate with the Head Office of the UN and Ministry of Internal Affairs Human Trafficking Department.
