Iran to present Third Cycle of UPR at UNHRC

Iran to present Third Cycle of UPR at UNHRC
IRAN  - Islamic Republic of Iran will present its Third Cycle of UPR at the UN Human Rights Council on Friday.

The Iranian judicial delegation, headed by the secretary of Iran's High Council for Human Rights Mohammad Javad Larijani, will attend the 34th session of Universal Periodic Review in Geneva, Switzerland.

Iran will discuss its latest efforts in promoting the situation of human rights in the country; and other members will also have the opportunity to raise question on Iran's report and present suggestions.

The UPR is a mechanism of the Human Rights Council under which it reviews, on a regular basis, the fulfillment of the human rights obligations and commitments of all 193 UN Member States. The UPR is an inter-state review process aimed at the improvement of the human rights situation on the ground.

The UPR is one of the key elements of the Council which reminds States of their responsibility to fully respect and implement all human rights and fundamental freedoms. The ultimate aim of this mechanism is to improve the human rights situation in all countries and address human rights violations wherever they occur.

Iran presented its Second Cycle of UPR at the UN Human Rights Council in 2014.
