An organization that mocks human rights

The United States decided to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council (HRO). About this, according to Bloomberg, said the US permanent representative to the world organization Nikki Haley, speaking to journalists in the State Department.

“We are officially withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, because a year ago we said that we would do this if we did not see progress,” she said.

“For too long, the Human Rights Council has been a defender of human rights violators and politically biased.” Unfortunately, it has now become clear that our calls for reform have not been heard. “Violators of human rights continue to be [in the Council] and elected to it “- also said Haley.

“The most inhumane in the world regimes continue to form a critical agenda, and the Council continues to politicize [decisions] and move arrows to countries with good track records from the human rights perspective in order to divert attention from violators and their deeds,” said the US Permanent Representative quotation on TASS).

Nikki Haley also noted that the UN HRC is a “hypocritical and self-serving organization that mocks human rights.” At the same time, Washington “will not depart from its obligations in the field of human rights,” she assured.

In her speech, the diplomat accused a number of countries of obstructing the reform of the council.

“When we made it clear that we will actively carry out the reform of the Council, these countries emerged from nowhere to counter this: Russia, China, Cuba and Egypt – they all tried to undermine our reform efforts last year,” she said.

Among the reasons for the US withdrawal from the organization, the diplomat called an “unflagging, pathological campaign” against Washington’s ally, Israel.
