Haley: Human Rights Council Is UN’s “Greatest Failure”


U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley defended the Trump administration’s June 19 decision to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council, saying Wednesday that the body is the UN’s “greatest failure,”┬áMargaret Besheer reports for VOA News.

“More often, the Human Rights Council has provided cover, not condemnation, for the world’s most inhumane regimes.” She spoke of the council’s singling out of Israel for criticism through “Agenda Item 7.” “No other country – not Iran, not Syria, not North Korea – has an agenda item devoted only to it. Agenda Item 7 is not directed at anything Israel does, it is directed at the very existence of Israel.” She said it is a “blazing red siren” signaling the council’s “political corruption and moral bankruptcy.”
