Human Rights Day message from Germany and the U.S

The Federal Human Rights Commissioner Christoph Strässeron on Human Rights Day

“We must not be drawn into a discussion about where Human Rights can differ from region to region. By doing so we would not be demonstrating tolerance but, rather, playing into the hands of those who violate Human Rights. For they are the ones who are trying to relativise them. Victims of Human Rights violations, on the other hand, are especially keen to emphasise their Universality.”   10 Dec 2015©Federal Foreign Office
