The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Bogotá, through Ambassador Paul Ryan, its Honorary Consul, has expressed its gratitude to the government of Antigua and Barbuda for its role in ensuring that Indonesia was elected as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council for the period of 2024-2026.
This decision was made during the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on 10 October 2023, where Indonesia received 186 votes from 193 UN Member Countries.
The Embassy is grateful for the support that Antigua and Barbuda provided to Indonesia’s candidature and would like to thank the Government for its efforts.
Indonesia is a six-time United Nations Human Rights Council member and remains committed to upholding rules-based multilateralism, promoting cooperation, and supporting countries in fulfilling their human rights obligations.
Indonesia’s active role in this regard will be pursued in collaboration with other members of the Council and the broader member states of the United Nations.
Indonesia will be guided by the principles of universality, impartiality, objectivity, non-selectivity, constructive international dialogue, and cooperation in its work in the Council.
The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Bogota takes this opportunity to renew its highest consideration to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Immigration, and International Trade of Antigua and Barbuda.
