Second World Human Rights Forum, International Recognition of Morocco’s Achievements: Hilale
The holding of the second edition of the World Human Rights Forum next week in Marrakech is in itself an international recognition of the Kingdom’s human rights achievements, Morocco’s ambassador to the UN, Omar Hilale said.
Morocco earned the privilege to organise this event which represents “in itself an international recognition of its achievement” thanks to its reach out to human rights and civil society organisations, Hilale told MAP, adding that the Kingdom will spare no effort to ensure the success of this global event and defend the principles endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council.
In this regard, Hilale highlighted the key role civil society plays in promoting and protecting human rights in the sense that they ensure monitoring of human rights on the ground.
This human rights dimension of the civil society was enshrined in the 2011 constitution, recalled the Moroccan diplomat.
The Forum, to be held on November 27-30, will bring together more than 5,000 participants from 94 countries including decision makers and NGO representatives.
