A coordination meeting on suggestions of UN member states over Myanmar at the 37th meeting of the Universal Periodic Review-UPR was held at the office of the Attorney-General of the Union yesterday.
Union Minister for International Cooperation U Ko Ko Hlaing said Myanmar needs to report its stance on 189 suggestions to the UPR task force in June. So, relevant ministries must express assessments over the suggestions based on current processes.
Attorney-General of the Union Dr Thida Oo said Myanmar had sent the first and second reports of UPR in 2010 and 2015. The third report sought the advice of 106 UN member states on 25 January 2021, and they gave 354 items of suggestions on the human rights of Myanmar.
Myanmar replied to the suggestions that it accepted 119 suggestions, noted 46 points of suggestions and decided to scrutinize and reply to the remaining 189 suggestions.
This meeting needs to focus on whether it is necessary to accept 189 points of suggestions or not based on the implementation of the relevant departments over these points. —MNA
