Statement by the Representative of the Russian Federation at the GFMD Thematic Workshop “Implementation of the Global Compact for Migration at the National Level”
Mr. Chairman, The Russian Federation has supported the adoption of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. This compromise document covers many dimensions of international migration, including humanitarian aspects, development issues and human rights. The Global Compact is not a legally binding instrument and does not impose legal or financial obligations on the acceding countries. At the same time, it enables States on the basis of their own national priorities and legislation to address challenges in the field of migration management, sets out specific directions for the approaches towards international migration and shapes universal views on this issue.
