The Egyptian human rights mission participated in a session tackled the human rights situations in South Sudan and Iran. The session has been attended by representatives from the UN Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan, and Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran.

Egypt’s participation would last until March 14, said head of the National Society for Rights and Freedoms Walid Farouk in the statement.

At the session, Chief of the UN Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan (UNCHRSS) Yasmin Sooka warned against a fragile peace in the African country, tweeting “UNCHRSS is concerned the international community may be lulled into believing the conflict is fully over, now there is unity government in SS [South Sudan].
