Askar, Head of HRC discuss support to national committee
Minister of Human Rights Mohammad Askar- along with a number of Arab diplomats- met Monday with the Head of Human Rights Council Koly Seck discussing support to the national mechanisms associated with human rights via supporting the National Commission to Investigate Allegations of Human Rights Violations.
Askar pointed to Houthi crimes committed by Iran-backed Houthi militia neglected by the UN Eminent Experts' Report.
He showed figures proving the size of the catastrophe of recruiting children and planting mines, as well as shelling neighborhoods and kidnapping activists and journalists by Houthi militia.
He pointed to Houthi militia's obstacles they made before peace efforts and not commitment to Stockholm Agreement.
He stressed that Human Rights Council has significant role for boosting human rights in Yemen and protecting civilians against human right breaches, hoping that this issue will never be politicized.
For his part, Seck confirmed support to national mechanism and to the national committee, pointing to necessity of sending a message from the council to protect human rights situation in Yemen and pushing the political solution forward.
