Russian foreign minister urges UN human rights structures to be impartial in their views on Middle East

Russia has urged UN human rights structures to be impartial in assessing the human rights situation in the Middle East, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, while speaking at a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday.

He said that Russia supports the Middle East and North Africa nations’ wish to live better and the efforts of their leaders to root out terrorism and to reconcile all ethnic and religious groups.

Lavrov urged all UN human rights mechanisms to support these processes and to be impartial in assessing human rights and international law violations in the region. “We must not allow politicizing these problems and turning them into instruments for escalating tensions,” the Russian minister said.
