In addition, the participants of the meeting paid attention to the protection of women’s rights. Dunja Mijatović noted the importance of promotion of the law on the prevention of violence against women, and also raised the issue of ratification of the Istanbul Convention.

At the end of the meeting, Tatiana Moskalkova and Dunja Mijatović expressed confidence in the further development of humanitarian cooperation and the strengthening of human rights cooperation.
