"The discussions on human rights should be representative and pluralistic," Lavrov said. "To this aim, Russia has nominated its candidate to be elected to the HRC for 2021-2023. I want to assure you that we will make every effort to promote collective principles of its [Human Rights Council’s — TASS] activity with the goal of developing consensus approaches and renouncing confrontation."
