The statement was highlighted in the article themed "Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All" by UN Resident Coordinator in Viet Nam Pauline Tamesis on the occasion of the Human Rights Day (December 10).

According to the UN Resident Coordinator, Viet Nam's election to the Human Rights Council for the period 2023-2025 presents a great responsibility but also an important opportunity to redouble efforts in protecting and promoting economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights in line with international human rights standards.

The nation has been strengthening education on human rights; and addressing the impacts of climate change on the enjoyment of human rights, with particular attention on the rights of vulnerable groups, emphasized Pauline Tamesis.

As Viet Nam commences its membership to the Human Rights Council, it would be critical to translate these commitments into concrete actions, and to demonstrate even stronger evidence of the protection and promotion of human rights.

Pauline Tamesis asserted that the United Nations, as a proud and long-standing partner of Viet Nam over the past 45 years, will continue to work closely with the Government of Viet Nam, development partners and civil society, to keep human rights at the center of all development efforts.

Renewed collaboration and cooperation, including meaningful inclusion and participation of diverse non-government actors and communities, will be crucial for promoting the vibrant dialogue needed to help Viet Nam progress on a broad range of human rights.

"Together, we can fulfil the promise of a human family that upholds dignity, freedom and justice for all", underscored Pauline Tamesis.

On 28 July 2022, the UN General Assembly adopted a historic resolution that gave universal recognition to the human right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment (R2HE). This important international legal development reinforces action in over 150 countries where the R2HE is already recognized.
