The Kyrgyz Republic was elected to the UN Human Rights Council for the period 2023-2025
On October 11, 2022, in New York, the Kyrgyz Republic, having received the support of 126 UN Member States, won the elections to the UN Human Rights Council for the term 2023-2025.
This foreign policy goal was under special control by Head of State, who in his speech during the High-Level Week of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly called on the world community to support Kyrgyzstan in its campaign for the Council. This task of the Head of State was successfully fulfilled by the diplomatic service of the Kyrgyz Republic.
In the Asia-Pacific Regional Group, six countries competed for four seats in the UN HRC for 2023-2025 - the Kyrgyz Republic, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Maldives, and the Republic of Korea.
The election of the Kyrgyz Republic to such an authoritative international body is an evidence of recognition by the world community of the country's human rights achievements and its future contribution to the global promotion of human rights, fundamental freedoms and democratic development.
The Kyrgyz Republic was a member of the UNHRC in 2009-2012 and 2016-2018.
