MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. Assessments of the UN Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein on the situation in Syria, he voiced in Geneva on March 14, raise a question of the conformity of his actions to his position, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
"We have to state that Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein’s speech at the 34th session of the UN Human Rights Council was not the first in a row of his statements and public assessments inadmissible for a UN official and opposite to commitments and requirements of professional ethics stipulated in the organization’s Charter for staff of the UN Secretariat," Zakharova said.
"This poses the question whether such actions of Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein are in conformity with the high international status of his position," she said.
