The Government of Austria has examined the declaration made by the Republic of Turkey upon ratification of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings, adopted on 16 May 2005. It welcomes the ratification of the Convention by Turkey as a significant step in combatting human trafficking and the protection of human rights. However, as a member State of the European Union, Austria opposes the declaration made by the Republic of Turkey which describes another member State, the Republic of Cyprus, as a defunct entity.
[Note by the Secretariat : Austria refers to its expressions of disagreement with interpretive declarations as “oppositions”, not as “objections”.]
