In the framework of the 41st Session of the Human Rights Council, which is being held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 24 June to 12 July 2019, Ambassador Pierre André Dunbar, Permanent Representative of Haiti to the United Nations Office in Geneva in his speech at the Tribune, concerning Haiti’s comments preceding the vote of the report of the Universal Periodic Review, a mechanism of the Human Rights Council aimed at improving the rights in each of the 193 Member States of the United Nations, declared :

Excerpt from Haiti’s intervention in Geneva :
“[…] Haiti welcomes the delegation of the Dominican Republic and takes the opportunity to congratulate the Dominican Government for its commitment to protect and promote human rights in its territory.
