U.S. Statement at the Universal Periodic Review of Liechtenstein

43rd Session

As Delivered by U.S. Deputy Permanent Representative to the HRC Kelly Billingsley

Thank you, Mr. Vice President.

The United States welcomes the delegation from Liechtenstein led by Her Excellency Ms. Dominique Hasler, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Education, and Sport.

The United States commends Liechtenstein’s longstanding commitment to the promotion of democracy and human rights and its support for UN agencies.

We recommend that Liechtenstein:

  1. Ensure all citizens with disabilities can exercise the right to vote on an equal basis with others and persons with disabilities can access education, health services, public spaces, and transportation on an equal basis with others.
  2. Enhance the ability of visually impaired persons to access government websites and official documents.
  3. Ensure government funding and other benefits to religious groups are provided on a nondiscriminatory basis.
  4. Advance equality in the workplace by creating and implementing a strategy to promote equal pay for equal work.

I thank you.
