Lithuanian MFA: Makei’s report has nothing to do with human rights protection

10

The report, issued in Belarus on Monday has nothing to do with the analysis or assessment of the situation with human rights in the world.

This was stated by the Lithuanian MFA on Monday, ru.DELFI.lt reports.

In the commentary, sent to the news agency BNS, the MFA emphasizes that “the document, meant for the assessment of the situation with human rights in the European Union’s countries and NATO, is prepared by a country, which refuses to cooperate with a special UN’s reporter on human rights issues”.

Such assessments and the attempts on the part of Belarus to present incorrect interpretations of historic and other circumstances under the cover of human rights are unacceptable and have nothing to do with the analysis or assessment of the situation with human rights in the world”, - the MFA’s Department for Information and Public Communications points out.

We would remind that the Belarusian regime, which has incurred the sanctions from the West because of the repressions against opposition and civil society activists, has published a report on Monday on the violations of human rights in the USA and couple dozen Europe’s countries, including Lithuania.

The document, published in the Belarusian MFA’s web-site, contains a review of human rights violations in 21 EU countries, USA, Canada, Norway and Switzerland. Russia and other post-soviet counties are not mentioned in the report.
