DUBAI – Bahrain has defended the UAE after the European Parliament passed a resolution criticizing the emirates’ human rights record.
The Bahrain Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the European Parliament’s resolution is based on “factually incorrect information”.
The ministry added that the resolution “lacks credibility and ignores the UAE’s significant achievements with regards to human development, the protection of human rights, upholding the principles of justice and equality and providing decent life for all UAE nationals and residents in compliance with its constitution and national laws.”
The ministry also noted that the UAE has a track record of achievements in ensuring justice, equality and protection of human rights.
