Mexico and the Mid-term Implementation Assessment
UPR Info expresses its deep appreciation for the willingness of the Mexican government to participate in its Follow-up Programme. Mexico's positive response to our request shows its commitment to the improvement of the human rights situation both on a national and an international level.
Generally, in the interests of balance and comprehensiveness, UPR Info attempts to include in its MIAs comments provided by the State under review, NGOs, and the National Human Rights Institution. Our inability to include Mexico's comments in the MIA, although unfortunate, does not adversely affect the quality of the NGOs' comments which participated in the Programme, but rather the implementation level, which would have been higher had we been able to take into account the State's participation.
We take the opportunity to thank Mexico for its willingness to collaborate, and we salute its efforts aiming at being transparent.
