GENEVA, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Attempts to impose human rights standards upon any others can only fuel intercultural disagreements, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 25th session of the UN Human Rights Council.
“Real progress can be achieved based on equal cooperation, a mutually respectful dialogue and the strengthening of trust between states,” Lavrov said.
“The efforts aimed at encouraging and protecting human rights should be taken in compliance with the norms and principles of international law, primarily the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other fundamental documents within the UN, the OSCE and the Council of Europe,” the Russian minister said.
“Attempts to impose human rights standards upon any other party can only fuel intercultural and inter-religious disagreements, trigger conflicts and wreck efforts aimed at creating a stable global development system,” he said.
