Miliband Praises Bahrain

The British Foreign Minister David Miliband praised Bahrain’s performance with regards to the Universal Periodic Review. This came during his launch of the annual British Foreign Ministry’s report on human rights on 17 March 2010. On this occasion he said that: ‘there are a number of countries that deserve to be praised on their strategies. We welcome the decisions taken by Bahrain, Argentina, Malaysia, Vietnam and Djibouti for launching a national action plan on human rights after their reviews’. He added that Bahrain and Argentina were exemplary in voluntarily presenting to the Council evidence of their progress in implementing recommendations on human rights.
