I am pleased to take part in and welcome you at the film festival dedicated to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document in the history, which is turning 70! Much has been done these years! Still it’s a long way to go to make this Declaration a reality in everyone’s life, in every country. I hope this festival in Kyrgyzstan will become another important contribution to the promotion of human rights.
