GENEVA, July 10 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait participated in preparing the draft resolution, alongside the Group of Islamic Countries, to be presented before the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to confront religious hatred and desecrating religious sanctities.
This came in a statement for KUNA, on Monday, by Kuwait's Permanent Representative to the UN and other international organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Nasser Al-Hain, saying that this resolution aims to eliminate all types of religious hatred based on discrimination, hostility and violence.
He said that the project will be discussed before the UNHRC on Tuesday, and will reiterate the importance of implementing the universal declaration of human rights, the international covenant on civil and political rights, and the international convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination.
