The Association of Ombudsmen and National Human Rights Institutions (NHRI) of Turkic States was established in Bursa, Turkey, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.
According to the National Center of the Republic of Uzbekistan for Human Rights, Uzbekistan at this historic event was represented by the First Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Director of the National Center for Human Rights Akmal Saidov.
Mr. Akmal Saidov noted that this year marks 30 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Uzbekistan and Turkey and 5 years since the establishment of strategic and partnership relations between the two countries. Last year Ankara and Istanbul hosted Uzbek Culture Days, this year Tashkent and Samarkand will host Turkish Culture Days. This year Uzbekistan will also host the first summit of the Organization of Turkic States.
“The new Association will become a unique organization uniting national human rights institutions and ombudsmen of our countries. This structure will contribute to the effective solution of issues of ensuring the rights of citizens in the member states of the Organization of Turkic States”, Mr. Saidov emphasized.
The National Center for Human Rights of Uzbekistan believes that this Association, created in the current conditions of strengthening cooperation between the Turkic states, will become a convenient platform for the interaction of national human rights institutions.
