On Wednesday, February 28, Gilles Tonelli, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, spoke at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, during the High-Level Segment of the 37th session of the Human Rights Council.
The Minister recalled the Principality’s commitment to the promotion and universal respect of human rights, both internally and in the context of its foreign policy.
Gilles Tonelli also commended the Council for its decisions over the past year, including the establishment of a fact-finding mission to Myanmar and the deployment of a Panel of Experts in Yemen. Both initiatives were supported by the Principality.
His speech at the rostrum of the Human Rights Council enabled Mr Tonelli to underline the Principality’s continued commitment to Human Rights, highlighting, in particular: Financial support to the International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism to facilitate investigations into the most serious violations of international law committed in the Syrian Arab Republic since March 2011; the Principality’s ratification, in 2017, of the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities; and the holding, in Monaco, on June 25, 2017, of a symposium devoted to “Violence against children in the context of the family and the school”, under the presidency of the Princess of Hanover.
