The message reads, in part:
“Your conference is being held in the year of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document for the protection of human rights around the world and for the work of national human rights ombudsmen.
It is necessary to deepen partner ties and to promote the exchange of practical experience among human rights commissioners from Eurasian countries, primarily in light of intensive integration processes and cross-border trade, investment and migration flows.
You have an intense and broad ranging agenda. You will be discussing many aspects related to the protection of civil rights and liberties in your countries and people’s economic, social, cultural and other interests.
I am confident that you will have interesting and productive discussions and that the ideas and initiatives you advance at this meeting will be put into practice.”
