Jean-Marc Ayrault would like to reaffirm France’s resolute commitment to the universality of human rights and lend our support to the Human Rights Council. This forum has been mobilizing the international community in the face of the most troubling human rights situations for more than 10 years. It helps place the defense of human rights at the forefront of international issues.
