  • [01] CYPRUS - UN - VIOLATIONS

    Cyprus Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Minas A. Hadjimichael, addressing the Third Committee at the 64th Session of the General Assembly, on human rights questions has said that despite the plethora of Security Council and General Assembly resolutions on Cyprus, and the efforts of the United Nations and the international community, the violations of human rights in Cyprus continue to affect the lives of the Cypriot people for more than 35 years now.

    In his statement, Ambassador Hadjimichael said that Cyprus is fully committed to the inclusive protection of human rights across the board and the establishment of unconditional accountability for all human rights abuses.

    He said that this cannot be achieved solely through the establishment of a comprehensive legal regime that defines the content of human rights and creates obligations for States.

    Ambassador Hadjimichael noted that while recognising the undisputed role of the United Nations in the codification of human rights norms, it is equally important for the Organisation to ensure the prevalence of these norms in practice.
