Danish FM Express Major Concerns

Addressing the UN Human Rights Council, Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig Moller expresses strong displeasure with the process so far:

“However, the preparations of the conference so far give rise to serious concerns, and a consensus based on the draft outcome document after the first reading seems unlikely. Attempts are being made to divert the focus of the conference away from the real problems of racism.”

“Denmark is committed to working for the promotion and protection of human rights. We cannot accept that the conference is being diverted from combating racism and racial discrimination to restricting freedom of expression or any other human right or fundamental freedom.”
