The Human Rights Council,

Recalling all previous resolutions on the promotion of the right of
peoples to peace adopted by the General Assembly, the Commission on
Human Rights and the Human Rights Council,

Taking note of General Assembly resolution 39/11 of 12 November 1984,
entitled “Declaration of the Right of Peoples to Peace”, and the United
Nations Millennium Declaration,

Determined to foster strict respect for the Purposes and Principles
enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations,

Bearing in mind that one of the purposes of the United Nations is to
achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of
an economic, social, cultural or humanitarian character, and to promote
and encourage respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all
without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion,

Underlining, in accordance with the purposes and principles of the
United Nations, its full and active support for the Organization and the
enhancement of its role and effectiveness in strengthening international
peace, security and justice and in promoting the solution of
international problems, and the development of friendly relations and
cooperation among States,

freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development,

concerning Friendly Relations and Cooperation among States in accordance
with the Charter of the United Nations,

Recognizing that peace and security, development and human rights are
mutually interlinked and reinforcing,

Affirming that human rights include social, economic and cultural rights
and the right to peace, a healthy environment and development, and that
development is, in fact, the realization of these rights,

Underlining that the subjection of peoples to alien subjugation,
domination and exploitation constitutes a denial of fundamental rights,
is contrary to the Charter and an impediment to the promotion of world
peace and cooperation,

Recalling that everyone is entitled to a social and international order
in which the rights and freedoms set forth in the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights can be fully realized,

which are necessary for peaceful and friendly relations among nations
based on respect for the principle of the equal rights and
self-determination of peoples,

prerequisite for the material well-being, development and progress of

rights are the pillars of the United Nations system and the foundations

on the basis of the Charter of the United Nations;

7. Affirms that all States should promote the establishment, maintenance

size, geographical location or level of economic development;

of the Charter, to use peaceful means to settle any dispute to which
they are parties and the continuance of which is likely to endanger the
maintenance of international peace and security, and encourages States
to settle their disputes as early as possible, as an important
contribution to the promotion and protection of all human rights of
everyone and all peoples;
