STATEMENT BY THE DELEGATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA DURING THE ADOPTION OF THE REPORT OF WORKING GROUP ON THE UNIVERSAL PERIODIC REVIEW OF ALGERIA
My delegation would like to extend our appreciation to the Delegation of Algeria for its constructive engagement in the third UPR cycle.
Indonesia welcomes Algeria’s commitments in strengthening the rule of law, good governance, human rights and human development in the country.
We commend Algeria’s efforts in adopting institutional, political and socio-economic reforms in the 2016 constitutional amendments, to provide greater access for participatory democracy, gender parity, child protection services, persons with disabilities services and the prohibition of child labor.
Furthermore, Indonesia appreciates Algeria for accepting all our recommendations to continue strengthening the work of the National Human Right Council, as well as enhancing child protection and persons with disabilities services, in order to provide legal protection against all forms of discrimination.
Finally, Indonesia supports the Council’s adoption of the Report of the Working Group on the UPR of Algeria. We wish the people and Government of Algeria success in implementing all its accepted recommendations.
