MOSCOW, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will give a speech at the 25th session of the UN Human Rights Council due to take place in Geneva on March 3-5, the Foreign Ministry reported on Thursday.
Russia’s delegation will submit a draft resolution on judicial integrity. “The draft resolution is aimed at strengthening international guarantees to make justice fair and unbiased. The draft resolution’s text adds provisions of the previous UNHRC resolution,” the ministry said, adding “Russia hopes that the draft resolution will be approved by acclamation.”
“The session will focus on a wide range of issues in encouraging and protecting human rights. After a year-long break Russia will resume its participation as a full-fledged member,” the ministry said.
