Equal emphasis should be given to promotion, protection of human rights, says EAM at UNHRC

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar at high-level segment of 46th session of Human Rights Council said that equal emphasis, should be placed on both promotion, and protection of human rights.

"Violation of gaps in implementation of human rights must be addressed in fair manner with non-selectivity and respect to principles of non-interference in internal affairs," he added.

S Jaishankar said, "Our Constitution has enshrined basic human rights as fundamental rights, guaranteeing civil and political rights, stipulating provisions for progressive realisation of economic, social and cultural rights.

These continue to evolve through Legislation by Parliament, progressive interpretation of laws by Judiciary, and active participation by civil society and citizens.

Our approach to the human rights council is guided by our spirit of engagement, dialogue and consultation."
