Talks with the United States over how to reform the main U.N. rights body have failed to meet Washington’s demands, activists and diplomats say, suggesting that the Trump administration will quit the Geneva forum whose session opens on Monday.
A U.S. source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters the withdrawal appeared to be “imminent” but had no details.
Diplomatic sources said it was not a question of if but of when the United States retreats from the Human Rights Council, which is holding a three-week session through July 6.
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, publicly told the Council a year ago that Washington might leave the body unless a “chronic anti-Israel bias” were removed.
The US is thinking about pulling out of the UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL. Just let that sink in for a moment.
We have gone from a beacon of human rights to a country that embraces dictators, separates children from their families and imprisons them in tent cities, and now not only refuses to condemn Israel for its terrible policy concerning the Palestinians but threatens to take our ball and go home if others do as well.
Who are we anymore?
