  • Arab

Cairo, June 12 (QNA) - Arab League has reiterated today its full commitment and unflagging obligations to stop the worst forms of child labor in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals 2030, as this issue represents apparent violations against children's rights, and consequently has psychological, physical, and educational impacts on them.
The Arab League said in a statement marking the World Day Against Child Labor which coincides with June 12 every year that it will focus its entire efforts this year to highlight the phenomenon of child labor during armed conflicts, disasters, and crises.
It indicated that it conducted a study on child labor in Arab countries, and has shown that children have been the primary and key victims of armed conflict and population displacement in the Arab region during the last decade.
The statement added that the General Secretariat of the Arab League will organize, in partnership with regional and international organizations, a regional workshop on child labor in light of armed conflicts, disasters, and crises, to shed light on the phenomenon of child labor, identify best practices to protect this category, and making proposals for the protection of children from recruitment and use in armed conflict, during disasters and crises.
