Dis­tance Not a Prob­lem

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - TODAY IN UZBEKISTAN -

With the help of a we­bi­nar, a new and ex­cit­ing in­ter­net-based sys­tem, the United Na­tions High Com­mis­sioner for Hu­man Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hus­sein met with the gifted youth of Uzbek­istan, con­grat­u­lated them on the forth­com­ing Youth Day (cel­e­brated in Uzbek­istan on June 30) and wished to be­come qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists in their field of choos­ing.

A meet­ing in real time be­tween Tashkent and Geneva was or­ga­nized by the Na­tional Cen­ter for Hu­man Rights of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan. Stu­dents of higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions of our coun­try took part in it. The rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Of­fice of the United Na­tions High Com­mis­sioner for Hu­man Rights in Kyr­gyzs­tan ob­served the event online.

This year, the world com­mu­nity widely cel­e­brates the 70th an­niver­sary of the adop­tion of the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights, spe­cial at­ten­tion is paid to in­form­ing the gen­eral pub­lic with ef­forts to pro­tect hu­man rights and in­ter­ests, fo­cus the at­ten­tion of the state, so­ci­ety and cit­i­zens to the val­ues and prin­ci­ples set forth in the Dec­la­ra­tion.

As a rule, our youth is al­ways in­volved in all walks of so­ci­ety’s life. Each young per­son has cer­tain rights, whether so­cial, spir­i­tual, eco­nomic or po­lit­i­cal. But you will agree, af­ter all the youth un­til re­cently did not as­pire to learn about their rights. To­day in Uzbek­istan, ac­tive work is car­ried out to re­port to the younger gen­er­a­tion that their rights need not only to know, but also to de­fend. We need to use our rights, to be in­ter­ested in what pro­grams the state is car­ry­ing out at any given time, be­cause this is done for the ben­e­fit of so­ci­ety. In ad­di­tion, it must be re­mem­bered that, in ad­di­tion to rights, ev­ery young man also has re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Thus, where there is free­dom, there is also a re­stric­tion on the rights of an­other per­son; none can ex­ist with­out the other.

In ac­cor­dance with the De­cree of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan “On the pro­gram of events ded­i­cated to the 70th an­niver­sary of the adop­tion of the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights” work in this di­rec­tion is be­ing im­proved.

To­day, in the process of im­ple­ment­ing re­forms in the ed­u­ca­tional, cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tional spheres, pri­or­ity is given to the cre­ation of even broader op­por­tu­ni­ties for the future of young peo­ple.

The pur­pose of this online meet­ing, ac­cord­ing to the di­rec­tor of the Na­tional Cen­ter for Hu­man Rights Ak­mal Saidov, is to ed­u­cate young peo­ple about the uni­ver­sal and re­gional mech­a­nisms for pro­tect­ing the rights of young peo­ple and the cur­rent prob­lems in the sphere. There­fore, they were given an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to share their ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge on this is­sue. Young men and girls re­ceived an­swers to all ques­tions that in­ter­ested them. The mas­ter of the Tashkent State In­sti­tute of Ori­en­tal Stud­ies Nil­u­far Mansurova said: “At the event we re­ceived in­for­ma­tion about the re­gional ac­tiv­i­ties of the Of­fice of the United Na­tions High Com­mis­sioner for Hu­man Rights. This meet­ing is an ex­pres­sion of in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion of Uzbek­istan’s ex­pe­ri­ence in this field.”
