Islamabad, Jan 5 (IBNS):  Pakistani Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari has called for more cooperation internationally to reduce crimes related to child sexual abuse.

She said child sexual abuse has become a serious issue in her nation.

"It is a universal problem across the world, and while every country tries to deal with it, perhaps greater international cooperation will help get rid of this crime much quicker," she told Xinhua news agency.

She said the Pakistani government will now play its part to end the problem by enacting more laws and rigidly implementing the existing laws that are related to child abuse.

The minister told the news agency that an awareness campaign will be launched across the country from this month in schools to educate children how to protect themselves from falling prey to sexual abuse. 

She said parents and teachers will be a part of the campaign.
