RIYADH, March 18 (KUNA) -- Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Abdullatif Al-Zayani on Saturday has expressed member states' denouncement of the report delivered by the Swiss representative at UNSC on Bahrain.
The report contained accusations and false information on human rights in the GCC member.
GCC rejects strongly claims included in the Swiss report, which neglected efforts made by Bahrain aiming to protect and enhance human rights, Al-Zayani said in a press statement.
He stressed that Bahrain has been making strenuous and noticeable efforts so as to maintain human rights in compatible with international standards and national laws.
GCC states urge the Swiss government to stop issuing such claims and accusations against the Kingdom at the UN human rights gathering.
They also asked of the Swiss government to depend on reliable sources regarding human rights in the Kingdom, and not to receive information in this dossier from suspicious sources which have certain agendas, he noted.
Such stances rejected by GCC member states do not help promote relations between the two sides, Al-Zayani made clear. (end) mdm.hm
