(MENAFN - Arab Times) More financial support should be given to the High Commissioner of United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to help its endeavors in protecting and promoting of human rights, Kuwait's Permanent Delegate to the UN Ambassador Jamal Al- Ghunaim said Friday. He made this remark in his speech at the UNHRC's 25th regular session, currently being held in Geneva, where he said that Kuwait calls on all Member States to give more financial aid to the human rights commissioner as demands for social, economic and political justice are growing



He added that Kuwait will always remain supporting the UN body out of its belief in the importance of protecting and promoting human rights. Kuwait's last year contribution was 500,000. Al-Ghunaim pointed out the UNHRC's current annual report surveyed challenges and crises around the world such as: the Syrian crisis, discrimination in all its forms and issues affecting women, including physical or sexual violence



The Human Rights Council is holding its 25th session from March 3 to 28 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. A wide range of human rights issues will be addressed, including presentations from the independent commissions of inquiry on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and on Syria and from the independent expert on Central African Republic, as well as interactive panel discussions on human rights mainstreaming focusing on the human rights of migrants, the death penalty, genocide, and the promotion and protection of civil society space
