U.N. Security Council approves tougher action on human trafficking

NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A resolution urging tougher action to crack down on human trafficking and modern slavery worldwide was unanimously approved by the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday.

The resolution called on countries to adopt anti-trafficking laws, ramp up efforts to investigate and dismantle criminal networks and provide greater support for survivors of slavery.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that trafficking was not just a crime, but also a development issue.

“Preventing the situations that lead to trafficking means addressing poverty and exclusion in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” he told the 15-member council.
