Speech of Ambassador, Head of the EU Delegation to Kazakhstan H.E. Mr Traian Hristea delivered at the Roundtable "Human Rights activities of the state and civil society institutions" (Astana, 8 December 2016)
On 10 December, the European Union and its Member States celebrate Human Rights Day. As inequality and violations of human rights pose increasing challenges across the world, and conflict continues in countries such as Syria, it is all the more important that we redouble our efforts to defend the rights of all people. This is why this year we join the United Nations in calling upon people to stand up for someone's rights.
