25th Session of the Human Rights Council
The Human Rights Council held its 25th regular session from 3 - 28 March 2014 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. Iceland raised a number of issues during the session, including the importance of combatting violence against children and women and upholding the rights of LGBT persons. In that vein, Iceland criticized a highly controversial anti-homosexuality law in Uganda. Along with 41 Member States, Iceland condemned Russia's military action in the Crimea which flagrantly violated Ukraine's right of self-determination. Iceland also held a cross-regional statement on behalf of 27 countries on the Human Rights Situtation in Egypt.
