Bangladesh’s UN envoy Rabab Fatima has said Bangladesh is deeply committed to the principles of human rights and fundamental freedoms which are reflected in the engagements with the human rights mechanisms of the UN.

She made the remarks while addressing the UN General Assembly debate on the report of the Human Rights Council on Friday.

 “As a member of the Human Rights Council, Bangladesh remains actively engaged and committed to the mandate and work of the council,” she said.

 She appreciated the efforts of the Human Rights Council (HRC) for keeping the Rohingya issues high on its agenda and for adopting a consensus resolution in its 47th session.

Fatima also acknowledged the role of the Special Rapporteur and the Independent Investigative Mechanism on Myanmar.
