Statements by President and Prime Minister of Georgia

10.12.13 10:03

President and Prime Minister of Georgia have released a special statements on the International Human Rights Day. The documents were published on the official websites of the President and the government of Georgia.

`Human rights are the fundament laid to the culture of the mankind. The inborn aspiration of a human being towards freedom and equality has always determined the progress in all periods of history. This aspiration reflected even in antic philosophy, Judaic-Christian ethics with all its sharpness and clearness has outlined the directions to the world`s political, social and cultural development.
Georgian culture is the inseparable part of the world civilization. The supremacy of human rights and freedom is recognized and protected by our constitution, as our history is based on these very values.  The ideal of freedom was always the main guideline for Georgia`s best leaders, poets, philosophers, political, religious and public figures.
The adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations` General Assembly on December 10, 1948, was the final and irreversible, victorious accomplishment of long lasting and difficult process.
However, while we are marking the Human Rights Day together with the rest of the world, we should remember once again, that the tradition needs to be continued and further developed; we should remember that the moment when freedom is sufficient, the desirable state has been achieved and we have right to be satisfied, never comes in the history; we should remember that ensuring perfect freedom for each person is possible only by our daily, tireless efforts,` President said in the statement.

`On December 10, the civilized world celebrates Human Rights Day. Since 1950 the whole civilized world has been coming together on this day to proclaim loudly once again that the human being is the ultimate value and every government is obligated to protect human rights, obligated to introduce the highest standards of respect for human rights.
Our government has proclaimed more than once that respect for human rights is our priority and has backed its words with deeds. It is in the field of human rights precisely that impressive changes and progress have been achieved in the past year. We refused to implement a policy aimed at cheap PR campaign and at making facade changes in life. Our policy focuses on the human being. Our primary concern is to ensure a dignified life for every citizen of Georgia. This is exactly why respect for human rights is our guiding principle. Human rights imply much more than freedom and equality only. Besides these, a human being needs social justice as well. And it is our duty to protect human beings from poverty, cherish those most needy, most vulnerable and neglected social groups.
And now, as our government has succeeded in enabling people freely to speak up their minds, to vote for their representatives in free and fair elections, and to view themselves as free citizens, we are obligated to make an all-out effort to ensure the social and economic empowerment of our citizens. The state is obligated to create all necessary conditions for its citizens to lead a dignified life. And this, along with our political will, takes a great deal of work.
I believe that our government will handle this serious challenge and overcome difficulties ensuring this way the inevitability of our success,` Prime Minister wrote.
