Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, delivered a keynote speech at the “We Protect 2022 Global Alliance Summit”, held in Brussels, Belgium.

The summit convened to discuss ways to enhance international cooperation and coordination to protect children in the digital world.

Sheikh Saif said the health and safety of any child is “crucial to the development and upbringing of a normal family and society. All of us must be keen to provide a healthy and safe environment for children, so that they become positive and active individuals in their communities.”

Children, he continued, are the bright future that lies ahead. “Protecting and supporting them must be a top priority for us, as well as for policy makers and decision makers.”

Sheikh Saif added, “President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, stressed that protecting the rights of children and ensuring their proper upbringing will always rank high among the UAE’s priorities. For this reason, we are required to secure a supportive and child-friendly digital environment. The family’s role is always an essential element for the success of all these efforts. Our joint and close cooperation with the global coalition “We Protect” since hosting its second summit in Abu Dhabi in 2015 gave birth to the National Strategy for Child Protection on the Internet.”

He called on the summit to take advantage of the gathering to come up with clear recommendations and obligations, for the good of children around the world.
