44th session of the Human Rights Council.


Qatar has called for the removal of all restrictions that would hinder Sudan's ability to move forward in its efforts to promote the wellbeing of its people, and called for the lifting of all economic sanctions and the removal of its name from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
Qatar also welcomed the efforts of the Sudanese government and its earnest endeavour to reach a lasting, just and comprehensive peace that would lead to stability, security and development in all parts of the country.
This came in a speech delivered by the Second Secretary of the Permanent Mission of Qatar in Geneva, Abdullah al-Suwaidi, during a session on "Enhanced Interactive Dialogue on Sudan" under Item 10 on providing technical assistance and capacity-building within the agenda of the 44th session of the Human Rights Council.
Al-Suwaidi stressed Qatar's keenness on promoting and protecting human rights in Sudan based on its firm conviction that the brotherly Sudanese people deserve to enjoy sustainable peace, stability and development.
He also thanked the government of Sudan and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) for the information provided on the progress made to open an OHCHR office in Sudan.
Al-Suwaidi praised the co-operation shown by the Sudanese government with the OHCHR, which reflects the country's strong will to co-operate with the UN mechanisms and the fulfilment of its obligations in promoting and protecting human rights, hoping that this sincere desire will be met with strong determination from the Human Rights Council and the OHCHR to provide the necessary technical support to build and strengthen human rights capabilities in Sudan.
