无视俄利益 奥巴马一子错

  EJ GLOBAL plus 信观点 EJ GLOBAL plus 无视俄利益 奥巴马一子错 Christopher R. Hill 1318 words 8 October 2016 信报 (简体) HKEJCN A25 Chinese – Simplified (c) 2016 信报财经新闻有限公司版权所有,不得转载。   在美国总统奥巴马的8年任期步入尾声之际,外界对他无法遏止敍利亚杀戮的批评愈演愈烈,不少人将之称为他「最坏的错误」。然而,这些批评者提出的替代方案,其实同样有不少问题。 批评者认为,奥巴马未有及早和决断地介入内战,是在逃避联合国所认同的「保护的责任」(Responsibility to Protect,R2P),即协助保护平民不受其政府以战争罪行迫害的责任。更甚者,奥巴马此举创造了一个让第三方力量在冲突中支持巴沙尔政府的空间,为政府军提供军事训练及空袭支援的俄国。 For full article click here

中国重返联合国人权理事会

中国重返联合国人权理事会 835 words 13 November 2013 07:22 AM 德国之声 (简体) DEUWOS Chinese – Simplified © 2013. Deutsche Welle   联合国人权理事会的职责是在全世界范围内争取和维护人权。但是47个理事成员当中却有一些国家自己就存在不尊重人权的问题。 (德国之声中文网)尽管人权人士的抗议,俄罗斯、中国、古巴还是被选入了联合国人权理事会。就连沙特阿拉伯和越南也获得了足够票数,挤进人权理事会。 人权理事会成立于2006年,它的前身是备受批评的人权委员会。人权理事会应更具备执行力,且在全世界范围内推进维护人权事业的发展。但遗憾的是,47个成员当中总是会包含一些被人权人士列入黑名单的国家。俄罗斯、中国、利比亚、阿塞拜疆、古巴、委内瑞拉等就属于这类国家。 此次人权理事会改选,28个国家参与竞选明年任期将届满的14个成员席位。明年1月1日起,人权理事会将加强理事会的工作,但是理事会成员之间的分化会显著加大。 For full article, click here.
