Statement by the Delegation of Thailand

H.E. Mr. Sek Wannamethee

Ambassador and Permanent Representative

at the Review of Germany

during the 30th Session of the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review

(Speaker Number: 107 Time: 1 minute 5 seconds)

 

Mr. President,

Thailand welcomes the delegation of Germany to its third UPR review.

We commend the efforts to promote the rights of migrants such as the provision of language and vocational trainings, better career prospects, and integration strategy. Given a large number of migrants in the country, Thailand recommends Germany to further promote migrants’ right to health and education by considering amending relevant legislations to allow undocumented migrants to have more equal access to the national healthcare system as well as to promote policies to integrate students with migration backgrounds in educational settings more evenly across different states.

We recommend Germany to enhance measures to effectively and comprehensively combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance, especially through education that promotes respects for cultural diversity, identity, social harmony and social inclusion since young ages. 

I thank you.
