UN To Angola: Oh Well, Let Us Know When You’re Ready

The United Nations announced today that it will close its human rights office in Angola, after authorities in the southern African nation decided not to sign an agreement that would have formally established the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the country.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour said she “respected but regretted” the Government’s decision.

“We look forward to examining any fresh initiatives the Government may suggest in line with its voluntary pledge to the Human Rights Council to increase its cooperation with my Office,” Ms. Arbour said.
