The UN Security Council has welcomed Morocco's recent positive steps in this regard including strengthening the National Council on Human Rights and working with the Special Procedures of the United Nations Human Rights Council, including the visit by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights planned for 2014. We also welcome Morocco's recent commitments to investigate complaints of human rights violations made to the National Council for Human Rights (CNDH) within 3 months, and to end military tribunal trials for civilians. We regularly raise human rights during dialogue with the parties to the dispute over the territory, and in discussions at the UN Security Council.
