Thank you Mr President,
Norway congratulates Estonia on the adoption of its UPR report.
During the review in January, Norway presented four recommendations for Estonia’s consideration, regarding minority groups, access to citizenship, combating hate speech and the allocation of resources to the Gender Equality and Equal Treatment Commissioner.
We were pleased that three recommendations were accepted immediately after the review, while we appreciate Estonia’s explanations and information provided regarding the fourth recommendation in the addendum, which was noted.
We look forward to continuing our close cooperation regarding the UPR, and more broadly in the Human Rights Council. We wish Estonia good luck in the implementation phase towards their next UPR review.
