AMMAN — Government human rights coordinator Basel Tarawneh on Monday launched a report assessing the efforts exerted as part of the Kingdom’s report on the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, which will be presented at the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in Geneva later this month.

Tarawneh said in a statement to the Jordan News Agency, Petra that the Royal discussion papers, the Comprehensive National Plan for Human Rights, the Amman Declaration, the strategy on women and the Jordan Vision 2025, all contributed to supporting the efforts to end all forms of discrimination.

Jordan, he said, ratified a number of agreements including the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination that has become an integral part of national legislations.
