France promises to work from multilateralism in the H.R Council

Paris, Oct 11 (Prensa Latina) France assured today that it will work in the UN Human Rights Council, convinced that multilateralism is the best way to respond to the contemporary challenges, after its election to integrate that organ.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry thanked the States that voted the day before for France’s candidacy to the Geneva-based Council for the three-year term beginning in 2024.

We are as a country more committed than ever to promote a policy of promotion and protection of human rights, in the year of the 75th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights, he stressed.

According to Paris, it will work tirelessly for the global abolition of the death penalty, the fight against impunity and discrimination and in favor of the rights of women, LGBT+ people, human rights defenders and freedom of the press.

France has faced criticism in recent months over police violence against protesters and minorities and refusal to take in migrants from the Italian island of Lampedusa.
