The new UN special rapporteur on human rights in Belarus has called on the authorities and civil society to engage in an open dialogue aimed at the promotion and protection of human rights in the country.

Speaking as he assumed his position on November 1, Miklos Haraszti said, "I would like to invite the Belarusian authorities, state institutions, and civil society to enter into an open dialogue with me on human rights issues confronting the country."

Haraszti said that human rights experts will meet with the Belarusian government to discuss ways to exchange information.

He added, "I hope to assist the government and people of Belarus in improving the human rights situation in the country in line with international human rights norms."

VERY NICE PERSON, BUT PRESIDENY CARTER HAS TAKEN HIS ROLE IN HUMAN RIGHTS, HE SHOULD STICK TO THE PROBLEMS IN HUNGARY BEFORE STICKING HIS TWO CENTS IN SALWING PROBLEMS IN OTHER COUNTIES ,. HE IS NOT ONLY ATTACKING LUKASHENKO FOR DETAINING NOT PEACEFUL PROTESTER, BUT ALSO ATTACKING JAPAN ON THE DEATH PENALTY AND ATTACKING JAPANS HIGH MORAL ISSUES THAT HE THINKS ARE NOT UP TO PARR TO THE LOW MORAL STANDERDS OF WESTERN EUROPE. CLEAN UP THE EU BEFORE YOU LECTURE OTHER NATIONS, MR. HRASZTI! THANK YOU RFE/RL
