Saudi Arabia Reviews Domestic and International Efforts to Promote Children's Rights

Saudi Arabia affirmed that its regulations are concerned with the protection of children from various forms of abuse, neglect, discrimination and exploitation, and to provide a safe and sound environment for children to develop their skills and abilities and protect them psychologically and physically.

The Kingdom also explained that its regulation regarding child protection came to ensure the protection of children from all forms of violence, and contribute to the implementation of obligations Under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which the Kingdom acceded in 1996.

This came during the Kingdom’s speech delivered by Reem bint Fahd Al-Omair, 3rd Secretary and Member of the Kingdom’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations in the general debate on the rights of the child within the work of the Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee during the 74th session of the UN General Assembly.
