The Human Rights Commission of the United Nations approved on Wednesday, July 1st, three resolutions presented by Mexico regarding migrant rights, women’s rights and the protection of human rights in the fight against terrorism.
The Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE) detailed in a statement that the three initiatives were approved following unanimous backing for the proposals.
The SRE indicated that the resolution regarding the protection of migrant rights reaffirmed the need to protect the rights of all those who find themselves in this situation, whatever their status.
It is the shared responsibility of the country of origin, the country of transit and the county of destination to guarantee that this is achieved, he said.
This is the first time that the Human Rights Commission of the U.N. has recognized the vulnerability of migrants in transit and the need to protect them.
The SRE said that for the story to receive global recognition, a detailed study of the situation of migrants in transit across the world should be submitted to the High Commission for Human Rights.
The resolution on the elimination of discrimination of women should focus on avoiding discrimination both at home and in the public sphere.
The resolution confirms the need for the states to fight on all fronts against terrorism, assuming it conforms to international law.
The secretariat commented that this year they have been focusing on avoiding discrimination and promoting equality. All states have been asked to revise their legislation to guarantee this.
The SRE stressed that this resolution has forced the Commission for Human Rights to reunite in the face of opposition from certain countries. It is now up to the states to continue to fight for human rights and against terrorism.
The Commission for Human Rights is the arm of the U.N. dedicated to the promotion and protection of all human rights.
Mexico is a member of the commission for the period 2014-2016.
