Ethnic and religious conflicts in the world are the cause of clashes and terrorism. If there is democracy and human rights as well as religious freedom in every country, there will be no riots and terrorism.

UN Human Rights Council should have the accurate assessment of the human rights situation in every country. Do not let some countries unilaterally launch a human rights report .
