Geneva - UAE Permanent Ambassador to United Nations and Other International Organisations in Geneva Obaid Salem Al Zaabi has commended the efforts of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, citing her detailed report, which covered many issues.

Delivering the UAE speech in inauguration of the 20th session of the Human Rights Council on Monday, Al Zaabi focused on the Freedom Flotilla incident, which had remained unresolved even after elapsed of two years. He regretted reports requested by the Council have not yet been prepared, a move he said, " poses a challenge to the international community, weakens the credibility of the Council and effectiveness of its resolutions. It is a double standard approach." The UAE envoy referred to the issue of violence against women and handicap girls, slamming all types of violence. He expressed support to the all the resolutions mentioned in the report presented by the Human Rights Commissioner, among others, an awareness programme against violence towards women and handicap girls, easy access to justice by victims and bringing perpetrators to books. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
