United States Human Rights Council: United Nations
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged the United States to reconsider its decision to withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council.
In the United States, US Ambassador Nikki Haley announced the withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council of 47 countries on Tuesday. He accused the council of bias against Israel and cited the membership of countries like China, Cuba, Venezuela and Congo with low human rights records.
Haley said, “The Council is inspired by” political favoritism. “However, I want to clear that being out of the council does not mean that we are retreating from our responsibilities towards human rights.”
During his Moscow visit, Gitterresh said that he would like to remain in the Human Rights Council. He said, “I believe that this human rights structure is an important tool for human rights protection across the world.”
Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “We hope that this decision is not final and America will again establish its commitment to the United Nations.”
