'Siege of Qatar undermines global order'

THE State of Qatar said that the illegal use of unilateral procedures by certain countries in contravention of the Charter of the United Nations (UN) and international law, such as the siege imposed by the neighbouring countries on Qatar, aims to undermine international order and leaves serious violations of human rights, calling for finding the best ways to limit or resist such actions.
The remark was made by Deputy Permanent Representative of Qatar to the UN in Geneva Abdullah al Nuaimi during an interactive dialogue with the special rapporteur on 'contemporary forms of slavery', its causes, consequences and the independent expert on establishing a democratic and equitable international order, which is part of the 39th session of the Human Rights Council.
Nuaimi said Qatar reiterates the need for countries to adhere, in its foreign relations, to principles of international law concerning friendly relations and cooperation between them as well as full respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity and political independence according to the Charter of the UN and other related international conventions.
He also highlighted the importance of refraining from the use of unilateral coercive measures that would have long-term negative consequences for human rights, cause obstacles for trade relations and impede the full right to development.
Nuaimi said that Qatar welcomes the visit of the special rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery to Doha, expressing his hope that the visit would achieve its intended goals.
With regards to the mandate of the independent expert tasked with establishing a democratic and equitable international order based on a holistic approach considering all human rights, he said that Qatar has taken note of the vision and priorities identified by the independent expert that will be focused on during implementation of his mandate in the next phase.
Nuaimi said Qatar reiterates the importance of this mandate in promoting and instilling the meaning of international order that is based on comprehensive respect for human rights, international solidarity, justice, peace, rule of law and development.
