Pakistan rejects the inclusion of its name in the U.S. State Department’s “Child Soldiers Prevention Act (CSPA) List”
We categorically reject the unsubstantiated and baseless inclusion of Pakistan in the “Child Soldiers Prevention Act (CSPA) List” – published under a domestic U.S. legislation – in the U.S. State Department’s Annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report 2021.
Pakistan does not support any non-state armed group; nor any entity recruiting or using child soldiers. Pakistan’s efforts in fighting non-state armed groups including terrorist entities are well recognised. The inclusion of Pakistan in the “CSPA List” depicts a factual error and lack of understanding. No State institution was consulted by the U.S. prior to the publication of the report. Nor were any details provided of the basis on which the conclusion was reached.
Overall, on the issue of Trafficking in Persons, Pakistan is committed to fighting this scourge both at the national and international levels. We have taken a range of legislative and administrative actions in that regard during the last one year, including the approval of Rules under the domestic Trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants Acts; National Action Plan 2021-25 prepared jointly by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC); and enhancement of capacity building and inter-agency cooperation of Law Enforcement Agencies involved in anti-human smuggling.
Pakistan has been voluntarily submitting information for the TIP Report to the U.S. Government since 2007 and has actively worked on implementing the practicable recommendations of these reports.
Pakistan calls upon the authorities concerned in the United States to review the baseless assertions made in the TIP Report, especially with regard to the unwarranted inclusion of Pakistan in the “CSPA List.” Pakistan also expects the sharing of “credible information” on cases involving Trafficking in Persons as well as on allegations pertaining to support to armed groups using child soldiers.
Pakistan’s views and perspective on the subject have been conveyed to the U.S. side. Pakistan would continue to remain engaged with the U.S. Government through bilateral channels for constructive dialogue on all issues of mutual interest.

Dr. #Bathina _ Shaaban in a United Nations session entitled:
′′ Arab International Forum to lift the siege on Syria ′′
The war was on #Syria because it is the duration of the Arab crown, and the world to a new regime.
Dr. Bethaina Shaaban, Special Adviser to the Presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic, has confirmed that the West claims to have no basis for human life and that the Western media has some concepts to cover up its crimes against peoples.
This came from an English paper submitted by Dr. Shaaban in a United Nations session featuring figures from the five continents that came to complete the work of the International Arab Forum to lift the siege on Syria.
And I showed Dr. Shaaban that since 2011 Syria has fought a dual war in which the West used its most fierce tools to confirm its explicit and colonial strategy towards peoples, and explained that the West and its side the Zionist entity have undertaken this war On Syria for being the crown in the Arab world.
She added Dr. Shaaban, the positive thing is that Syria has established a new multipolar international order, and the sanctions imposed by America on Syria, Russia, China and Iran are implied by Washington’s concern over the upcoming international variable that will end its sovereignty On the world.
Participants contributed by discussing what was stated in the paper of Dr. Shaaban, the timing of this qualitative meeting comes on the eve of #Jerusalem International Day to confirm the unity of the battle at the nation, region and world level against the colonial Western Zionist project.
US, Australia, and Europe speakers have confirmed that the US violence against the Syrian people through unjust sanctions is the same as against indigenous people, Afro-descendants or dark skinned people, and everyone called on To global solidarity to lift sanctions against Syria and to put an end to the use of these coercive measures by the West, which are a breach of international law and ethics.
And Dr. has answered Sha ‘ ban for the questions of attendance and their discussion in their thoughts and thanks for greeting the Syrian people and the Syrian leadership and their distinguished interest in the situation in Syria.
I didn’t really know my father—he left my mother and me when I was two years old, and only traveled from Kenya to visit us once, when I was ten. That trip was the first and last I saw of him; after that, I heard from him only through the occasional letter, written on thin blue airmail paper that was preprinted to fold and address without an envelope.
His short visit had a profound impact on my life. My father gave me my first basketball and introduced me to jazz. But for the most part, the visit left me with more questions than it answered, and I knew I would have to figure out how to be a man on my own.
In our latest conversation on Renegades: Born in the USA, Bruce Springsteen
and I explore the topic of masculinity and the influence that our fathers—both flawed role models—had on our lives. We also talk about the message American culture sends to boys about what it means to be a man—a message that too often emphasizes physical toughness over sensitivity; the need to dominate over the ability to love and care for others.

Let me tell you a story tonight about my hero, @LeeMerrittEsq.
That’s him, with the mothers of Jaylin, Andy, and Josh in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Jaylin is still fighting to survive and Andy and Josh were shot and killed by an open bigot just 2 weeks ago.
These families are devastated beyond words. Tonight @GrassrootsLaw was able to pay the rent and bills for all three of these mothers for at least the next few months. Thank you to a generous donor for helping us make this happen.
Lee travels all over this country for nearly 250 days a year to let mothers just like this know that he will help carry their burdens and grief and he let’s them know that they aren’t alone.
Lee has to have the hardest conversations you can ever imagine with these families. He has to ask questions that nobody ever wants to ask. He often has to visit morgues and oversee autopsies.
He has to visit the scenes of the most heinous hate crimes and police murders in the nation – even recreating them to help him understand how to help these families find some semblance of justice.
Daily, he wades through blood, murder, and grief… for us.
And he also does this for me.
He is my closest partner in the world in this work and has been for years now.
We have very different skills but an almost identical worldview and sometimes operate as one brain on cases for families, but while I make these cases known to the world, and organize our staff and organizers @GrassrootsLaw to do what we do…
He does the hardest work and carries the heaviest load.
Brother – I love you like blood and will have your back until the wheels fall off. Even if they do fall off, I’ll still be there homie.
Thank you for being there for the families that this racist country chews up and spits out.
You are my peer hero.
Kissinger in Damascus.. GENEX conference..
Henry Kissinger offered his vision for the forthcoming Geneva conference for peace, saying first and foremost, the conference must begin, not because it will be solemn celebration, or because the opening would lead to any outcome, but the real goal of a conference #Peace is the introduction of the ′′ landscape ′′ and the legal framework within which the peace process can continue. Once we start there will be no turning back. During the performance of the inaugural session ceremony, the Conference will be divided into two stages.
In the first phase, the United States of America seeks to persuade Israelis one way or another to withdraw somewhere from the occupied Arab territories, thus achieving separation of forces. He pointed out that this would be difficult because Israel, throughout its history, has never backed down. If he can guarantee such a #withdrawal, that would be a great step, which would create a significant positive change in the psychological situation in the region, but Kissinger asserts that this withdrawal does not necessitate commitment to the decision ‘precise interpretations’ #Council United Nations Security Nos. 242 and 338, and judges for total withdrawal from all the occupied Arab territories. On the #Egyptian Front, Kissinger suggested an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank of the Suez Canal. He referred to the possibility of applying the same principle primarily on the Syrian side, saying: ′′ It is necessary to withdraw from Syrian territory in the first phase “.
Kissinger added that after reaching the above, negotiations could be moved to the next stage. The _ lion stayed reclined, silently listening without saying a word, waiting for Kissinger to finish his thoughtful theater scene with clear care. The US Secretary of State drew attention to the fact that such withdrawal would be more difficult to achieve on the Syrian Front than the Egyptian Front, because the Israelis ′′ really hate Syrians “.
The reason why the call for #conference was designed is so much headache for Americans in the past weeks, because #Israel refused to attend any meeting if the call message includes any indication of Palestinian representation. Kissinger discusses with Sadat Egypt’s president two solutions on the message, one of them stipulated that the call for ′′ participation of other parties ′′ in the first stage of the conference, and the second that the complicated message should be summarized to become a simple invitation to attend the conference without mentioning anyone from Participants including Palestinians.
Sadat in turn approved both formulas, provided #Damascus approval also. Kissinger Assad stated that Israel was eager to activate a #diplomatic fight and would gladly seek to thwart the conference because of the invitation letter. In addition to the Israeli s’ apathy towards such a conference that could lead them to serious concessions, they welcome any excuse for absenteeism. For six years, Israel has claimed the desire to negotiate with full knowledge that #Arabs will refuse.
Follow Kissinger complaining, but now that situations have changed, Israel is forced to move from words to actions, which has not been easy for #GoldenMair. Kissinger Assad appealed to agree to postpone the opening of the conference from 18 December to 21, to give him time to solve the dilemma of advocacy with the Israeli government.
Here Assad spoke, violating Kissinger’s obsession and talking about conference techniques and procedures, by saying:
′′ Our full stance on the peace conference depends on our conversation ′′
