On the Occasion of the Human Rights Day

December 09, 2016 – Asmara, Eritrea

Statement Delivered by H.E Minister Osman Salih, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the State of EritreaHonorable Ministers,
Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

The UN adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to set out common standards which every country should strive to achieve.The essence of this is promotion of the ideals of humanity. Human Rights Day is thus an opportunity to reflect on the human right situation globally and its implications to Eritrea.

As a country that emanated from the struggle for human right,Eritrea has mainstreamed it in nation building.Hence, equal rights and opportunities sanctioned by national laws are promoted. Dignified livelihood targeting poverty elimination is evolving and the equitable distribution of resources ensured.Above all the responsible participation of the people has prevailed.

In this vein, the rule of law is also instituted but fast tracking the political process to strengthen the infrastructure that enhances human rights is a vital goal.Revised national codes have been declared and writing a new constitution is on course. The initiative to reorganize government institutions and administrations is also ongoing to consolidate guidance and effective services. Read more
