SIMFEROPOL, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea is ready to receive UN missions, First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Temirgaliev said at a meeting with UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic on Friday.
“We invite delegations under the UN auspices to carry out corresponding missions in the Republic of Crimea,” Temirgaliev said.
Fundamental human rights are and will be observed in Crimea, the first vice-premier told Simonovic.
“I want to tell you the Republic of Crimea, a newly-created constituent entity of Russia, will observe the basic human rights and freedoms principles,” Temirgaliev said.
Crimea is an open democratic society and it is ready for a dialogue with all international organizations. “I hope that the UN, which has rich experience in implementing different programs, will take the same attitude towards Crimea,” he said.
Commenting on reunification with Russia, the first vice-premier said self-determination was recognized as a right of all peoples in the UN Charter. “Thus, we believe that the referendum of March 16 is legitimate and corresponds to the UN standards and international law.”
Over 80% of people in Crimea took part in the referendum. Almost 97% of Crimean residents voted for the accession to Russia, Temirgaliev said.
