Baku –APA. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon addressed the world community on December 10, Human Rights Day, UN Office in Baku told APA. “On this Human Rights Day, we also celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Drafted amid utter destruction and destitution following the Second World War, the Declaration reflects humanity’s aspirations for a future of prosperity, dignity and peaceful coexistence”, said in the message.

“Today, the Declaration remains a core part of the UN’s very identity.The challenges we face today are as daunting as those that confronted the Declaration’s drafters. We face a food emergency and a global financial crisis. Humankind’s assault on the natural environment continues. There is political repression in too many countries. And as ever, the most vulnerable continue to be on the frontlines of hardship and abuse. The luckiest among us, those who are spared the most negative effects of disaster, poverty or instability, cannot turn a blind eye. The cascading effects of abuse and indifference can eventually engulf the entire planet”.

Rights, and especially their violation, must hold the whole world in solidarity. On this Human Rights Day, it is my hope that we will all act on our collective responsibility to uphold the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration, said Ban Ki-moon.
