The United States welcomes the delegation of Andorra.

The United States recommends that Andorra:

1.Develop a legal process to ensure the protection of refugees and asylum seekers, with appropriate safeguards for unaccompanied children;

2.Continue to work to end workplace discrimination and income inequality based on sex.

The United States applauds Andorra for its excellent human rights record.  Its new Equality and Nondiscrimination Law takes concrete steps to ensure equal treatment before the law and provides remedies for those suffering from discrimination.
