UN chief urges world to stand up for all human rights | Mehr News Agency

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has urged people and leaders everywhere to stand up for all human rights – civil, political, economic, social and cultural – and for the values that underpin hopes for a fairer, safer and better world for all.

“On this Human Rights Day, I want to acknowledge the brave human rights defenders and advocates, including UN staff, who work every day, sometimes in grave peril, to uphold human rights around the world,” he said.

The UN chief made the remark in a message on the occasion of International Human Rights Day that falls on December 10.
