During the meeting, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs urged the organization to focus its efforts on serious and accurate follow-up of crimes against human trafficking and the smuggling of some Yemeni groups to neighboring countries, especially children, which expose them to the most horrendous forms of exploitation, in violation of divine laws and international laws.
