U.S. Embassy Statement on the World Day against Trafficking in Persons


In recognition of July 30, the World Day against Trafficking in Persons, the Embassy of the United States condemns trafficking in persons in all of its forms.  The U.S. is committed to working with Romanians to help end all human trafficking.

We strongly urge all governments to combat human trafficking through comprehensive and victim-centered protection services, crime prevention that addresses the tactics of traffickers head-on and better informs communities, and prosecution and conviction of traffickers to hold them criminally accountable.  With a focused approach to our collective anti-trafficking efforts, we can and will make a difference.
