MINSK, 24 June (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia will present a report on the situation with human rights in individual countries before the United Nations Organization and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov made the statement after negotiations with Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Aleinik on 24 June, BelTA has learned.

Sergey Lavrov said: “The document will be presented on the sidelines of a session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on 3 July and in the OSCE on 5 July.”

“We’ve agreed to continue stepping up the level of interaction within the framework of the United Nations Organization, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. We will support each other’s initiatives on key Eurasian multilateral platforms,” the official also noted after the talks.

BelTA reported earlier that in June the ministries of foreign affairs of Belarus and Russia prepared the first joint report on the human rights situation in individual countries. The document was published on the websites of the two ministries in the morning on 20 June.

The survey covers more than 40 countries. Those are many countries of the European Union (including Belarus’ closest neighbors), the UK, the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ukraine, Moldova, and other ones. The situation in each country is covered in minute detail, with concrete facts cited. Multiple photos are attached in the supplement as a visual confirmation. The document is quite large and includes over 1,800 pages.
