The Foreign Affairs Ministry (MAE) hails the celebration of the Human Rights Day, on 10 December and joins all those sharing the values that this day represents.
"In this year, in which we celebrate 70 years since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 10 December is a day in which we should realise that the humans' fundamental rights and freedoms cannot be ignored or violated, being essential for them to be protected at all levels by a legal system, but also by all the participants in the public life," the MAE release sent to AGERPRES on Monday informs.
On this occasion, the MAE re-confirms its commitment to promoting and protecting all human rights, regardless of race, gender, social status or religious belief and condemns any attempt to diminish the principles of universality and indivisibility of human rights.
The MAE underscores that throughout this period marked by multiple challenges amid racism, xenophobia, hate speech, it's necessary to identify some effective responses, on long-term, to the existing crises, such as migration, as well as violations of international law.
"As a member state of the UN and other international and regional bodies, now, on the brink of taking over the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Romania joins the efforts of the international community to observe human rights around the world. In fulfilling this task, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to emphasize, once again, the important role and contribution of non-governmental organizations ", the MAE release shows.
