Egypt is keen to benefit from international experiences, best practices in human rights: Ambassador Alaa Rushdie
As part of the debate, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairperson of the Permanent Supreme Committee for Human Rights Sameh Shoukry met with Muhammad Faiq, President of the National Council for Human Rights (NCHR).
To mark the celebration, which falls on 15 March every year, the Ministry released a film on the history, origin, work, and role diplomacy plays in defending Egyptian interests, and the constant care Egypt’s diplomats provide to citizens abroad.
The Ministry said, in a statement on Thursday, that Egypt aspires to a new world that balances between political, civil, economic, social, and cultural rights, without prioritising certain rights over others, or exploiting human rights to achieve narrow political ends.
In the statement, the ministry also affirmed the country’s commitment to its international commitments, foremost of which is the United Nations (UN) Convention against Corruption. The convention represents the only internationally binding framework for multilateral cooperation for states party to it.
