Morocco Lauds Constructive Interaction With UN Special Rapporteur On Torture
Morocco lauded, on Monday in Geneva, the constructive interaction with the UN special rapporteur on torture Juan Mendez, reaffirming the Kingdom's resolute and effective commitment to fighting torture.
Speaking at the 25th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Morocco's permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Omar Hilale, reiterated the determination of the kingdom to cooperate with UN mechanisms for the promotion and protection of human rights, including the special procedures.
The recommendations by Mendez have all interest necessary for their implementation as part of the national action plan for the implementation of recommendations by UN human rights mechanisms, said the diplomat shortly after the submission of the Special rapporteur's report.
The Kingdom also welcomes the dialogue established within this framework through two working sessions held by Moroccan officials with the international expert and the progress report submitted by Morocco in January, he said.
