10-7-2019

The NCLW head, Claudine Aoun Rukuz, stressed yesterday after a meeting with foreign minister, Jibran Bassil, that the visit comes in the framework of the Commission’s talks with parliamentary blocs and ministers to present the National Action Plan for the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security. And while she hoped the Cabinet would vote on the plan soon, Rukuz said she updated Bassil on the projects drafted by NCLW, notably the nationality law, the ban of child marriage and other laws that eliminate discrimination against women. Rukuz underlined the significance of the proposal that enables Lebanese women to confer nationality to their children, maintaining that she will press for its discussion in the Legislature. Recalling, that the draft was prepared by the NCLW as commissioned by the prime minister, Saad Hariri. (L’Orient Le Jour, July 10, 2019)
