BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi and Italian NGOs, in cooperation with Italian foreign ministry, will organize, next week in Sulaimaniya an international conference to prevent trading with humans.
The conference will be attended by Iraqi officials from the central government and the Kurdish, as well as Italian, European and Iraqi activists.
Ex-Iraqi Minister for Human Rights Bakhtiar Ameen, head of the International Alliance for Justice (AIJ) said that the conference will study the mechanism to prevent trading with the humans and means to combat it locally, regionally and internationally.
The conference will be held on 21-22 May, 2012 in Dukan city, Sulaimaniya, Kurdistan region.

Iraqi Parliament endorsed a law against trading with the humans in February 2012.
Iraqi-Italian economic and cultural relations witnessed greater development with Kurdistan, which has its autonomy since 1991, that led to opening an Italian consulate in Arbil last year.
The conference agenda will comprise five sessions on the two days.
