I have the honour to speak on behalf of the EU and its Member States that are members of the Human Rights Council.
The EU would like to thank Mexico for presenting the Resolution L.7 on the Human rights of migrants.
We would like to express our deep appreciation to Mexico for the efforts undertaken to build consensus around this initiative.
Protecting and upholding the human rights and fundamental freedoms of migrants remains at the core of EU policies. The EU is further committed to protecting freedom of expression in accordance with international law, recognizing that an open and free debate contributes to a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of migration.
For this reasons we support the adoption of this resolution by consensus.
