Mr President,

The Republic of the Maldives thanks Poland for the update and appreciate its meaningful engagement at its Review.

Mr President,

The Maldives is encouraged by the Poland Government’s efforts to advance child rights and the importance it gives to protecting the rights of persons with disabilities. We also commend Poland for all the initiatives undertaken to fight gender based violence, the discrimination women face at workplaces,  sexual exploitation of children and acts related to racial discrimination.

We wish the delegation of Poland every success in implementing the recommendations of the review.

Thank you,
