France welcomes the appointment of Zeid Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein, who until now served as Jordan’s Permanent Representative in New York, as United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

It wishes him every success in carrying out the important missions entrusted to him.

We express our deep gratitude for the work carried out over the last 6 years by Navenethem Pillay, who promoted the role of high commissioner, maintained her independence and spoke out for the most vulnerable.
