Human Rights Commissioner Strässer on two resolutions adopted by the United Nations General Assembly

18.12.2015 - Press release

The Federal Government Commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid, Christoph Strässer, issued the following statement today (18 December) on two resolutions adopted by the United Nations General Assembly:

Today the UN General Assembly, among other things, adopted by consensus two resolutions either sponsored or co‑sponsored by Germany. They are about strengthening the human rights to water and sanitation as well as the closer involvement of National Human Rights Institutions in the work of the UN.

I expressly welcome these resolutions because I am convinced that they will make an important contribution towards strengthening the international protection of human rights.
