Secretary General of Algeria’s MOFA, led the Algerian delegation to the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council. Geneva, 26/02-23/03/2018.

GENEVA- The progress made by Algeria in terms of promoting and protecting human rights was highlighted, on 28th February, by the Secretary General of Foreign Affairs Ministry Noureddine Ayadi in the 37th session of UN Human Rights Council, held in Geneva.

“The evaluation of the progress made in the promotion and protection of human rights and the challenges facing our countries, leads me to broach the progress achieved by Algeria, which, as you know, honored its commitment by presenting its 3rd report before the peer review mechanism last May,” said Ayadi.

He affirmed that “this evaluation was productive as it allowed us to have an update on the commitments made in 2012,” adding that “nearly all the commitments were accepted and Algeria is working, through the strengthening of the democratic process, towards the achievement of all the recommendations, except the ones that are not in line with the Constitution of the country, with the sovereign choices of the Algerian people and the values of the Algerian society.”

Ayadi also participated in the high-level segment from 26 to 28 February, and will hold discussions, on the sidelines of this session, with the heads of delegation as well as with chiefs of UN agencies based in Geneva.
