GENEVA: The United Arab Emirates has stressed the need to enhance international cooperation in the field of human rights with a focus on the right to development.

"The cooperation in the field of human rights had become more and more important, particularly in the light of this year's adoption of the post-2015 development agenda," UAE's Permanent Representative to the UN and other international organisations in Geneva, Obaid Salem Al Zaabi, said while addressing a high-level panel on the enhancement of International Cooperation in the Field of Human Rights, held by the Human Rights Council yesterday.

"It is time for the right to development to be made a reality for all, in both its collective and individual aspects," he added.

He quoted a clause in the UN Declaration 41/128 for 1986 on the Right to Development which confirms that this right is an inalienable human right and that equality of opportunity for development is a prerogative both of nations and of individuals who make up nations. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
