General Comments on Draft Resolution A/HRC/43/L.4

Human rights of migrants: mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants

Thank you, Madam President.

The Philippines fully supports the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, and hopes that this technical resolution to extend this mandate will be adopted without a vote.

This mandate has only become more urgent and important with the widespread implications of the pandemic on the welfare of migrants all over the world.

We join calls for the Human Rights Council and the OHCHR, and the Special Procedures to fully support this mandate.

Thank you, Madam President. END.
