Foreign Minister @HeikoMaas: “Germany has been among the strongest supporters of the Yemeni people for years. We will further increase our humanitarian contribution this year and provide 200 million euro to the #Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan.“
„It is our collective responsibility, as donors, to provide the necessary means to stop the disaster that is unfolding before our eyes. But it is the parties to the conflict that must finally end this war!” – FM @HeikoMaas during today‘s High-Level Pledging Event for #Yemen
At todays High-Level Pledging Event on #Yemen @HeikoMaas announced 200 million euro for the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan: “ It is the worst humanitarian catastrophe of our times. What is even more devastating: the human suffering caused by the conflict is entirely man made.“
Good news from Accra: Ghana is the first country to receive 600,000 doses of #covid19 vaccine through #COVAX. Germany recently increased its contribution to COVAX by 1,5 billion euro and is one of the biggest contributors to the platform.
At #HRC46 🇩🇪 expresses its solidarity with the Belarusian people, who are peacefully and courageously standing up for their rights.
We condemn severe #HumanRights violations in Belarus, including reports of torture, sexual violence & enforced disappearances.
In view of steep deterioration of the human rights situation in #Belarus, the EU🇪🇺 will present a resolution aiming to ensure the much needed continued international scrutiny of the human rights violations & to ensure accountability. #HRC46

#Germany’s conviction of former #Syrian official and perpetrator of international crimes, Eyad al-Gharib, is a major step forward: with no international process under way, fair national courts can and should fill accountability gap for such crimes, wherever committed.
As part of the Core Group on Sri Lanka, Germany reiterates the importance of the HRC’s efforts in advancing human rights, reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka. A comprehensive dealing with the past is necessary for inclusive and sustainable reconciliation. #HRC46
Das ist ein historisches Urteil. Es ist das erste Urteil, was Verantwortliche für #Folter in #Syrien zur Rechenschaft zieht und es schafft zumindest ein wenig Gerechtigkeit. Die Entscheidung hat für viele Menschen nicht nur in Syrien eine hohe symbolische Bedeutung.
FM @HeikoMaas: Today’s ruling by the OLG Koblenz is historic: it is the 1st verdict to hold persons responsible for #torture in #Syria accountable. It delivers at least some degree of justice. The decision has great symbolic significance for many people, not only in Syria.
“The pandemic, the digital revolution and climate change remain the top challenges of our times. It is on us to show that multilateralism is the answer” - @HeikoMaas during today’s virtual meeting of the Alliance for Multilateralism. #MultilateralismMatters
FM @HeikoMaas: We wholeheartedly welcome the US announcement to take an active role in the UN Human Rights Council again. The Human Rights Council is not perfect, but it will be much stronger with the US than without it. #MultilateralismMatters
