11 March 2013
Item 3: Promotion and protection of all human rights, civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, including the right to development.

General Debate on the Promotion and Protection of All Human Rights, including the Right to Development.

Full text of the statement:

We draw attention to the serious harm to human rights caused by the scourge of war, the threat of war, and unlawful sanctions.

These acts of violence have killed more than 3 million people in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya alone.

This year we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the unlawful aggression against the people of Iraq, with a series of side events on the 14 and 15 of March.

To date the Council has failed to address such unlawful violence allowing impunity of some of the most serious human rights violators.
