According to information RIA News, US media reported on the possibility of the United States leaving the UN Human Rights Council.

The United States can leave the UN Human Rights Council


According to the media, the administration of US President Donald Trump raised this issue in connection with the adoption of December 23 of resolution UN Security Council (14 "for", the United States abstained, without applying the veto), condemning the Israeli settlement activity, which was described as a "flagrant violation" of international laws.



The Security Council’s decision demanded that the Jewish state stop building settlements in the Palestinian territories. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately announced his refusal to comply with the resolution. In protest, Israel has reduced the annual funding of the World Organization by $ 6 million. The country's annual contribution of $ 40 million has been reduced by the amount that the UN allocates to the activities of the four committees dealing with Palestinian issues.

The UN Human Rights Council is an international human rights body in the organization’s system, replacing the Commission on Human Rights. Considered a subsidiary body of the UN General Assembly. The first meeting of the Council was held in 2006. Members of the General Assembly elect members of the HRC who occupy 47 seats on the board.

    "The United States may leave the UN Human Rights Council"
    In this case, if the United States refuses to pay contributions to the HRC, then this body will cease to exist. They are already used to living in a big way, and without US money they will be kirdyk.

        Here, apparently, the fact is that the "resolution" was adopted back in Obama's time. But Trump does not seem to agree with this decision. In all likelihood, an ultimatum was issued to the Council: either cancel the resolution, or we will withdraw from the HRC. We need to wait for further news. hi

          Security Council resolution is difficult to disavow. Yes, and Americans are pragmatists. Perhaps the Human Rights Council is no longer an instrument of US policy, so they pouted. If so, then this is the result of the work of Vitaly Ivanovich.

            I think, in order not to guess on the coffee grounds, you need to know the opinion of the Israelis, they are probably in the know. Aw! Is there anyone on the site from the promised country?

              The United States (and I, too) do not like the imbalance in the decisions and statements of this Council.
              Human rights are violated in many countries, including Israel.
              But according to the number of statements and resolutions of the Council, it seems that there are violations in the world
              only Israel is involved.

                  All these Councils, if they stop working for the Jackal, then immediately indulge in anathema and are declared not meeting the requirements of the Democracy. Boycott is the weapon of choice "exceptional." Most likely hurt the interests of one of the "families" of fanatics.

          Something you all beguiled at all. The resolution was adopted by the UN Security Council, and the United States speaks of withdrawing from the Human Rights Council.
          The UN Security Council’s resolution cannot be canceled and the Human Rights Council has nothing to do with it, and the US exit from there can have absolutely no effect on the adopted resolution, since to cancel it, at the very least, the consent of Russia and China, and Russia will block 100% cancellation. Obama shit so shit.

      The United States at least twice (in 1999 and 2009) had debts on contributions to the UN itself; both times a billion. am

      And - what is surprising, no one has deprived them of their right to vote for this, like Venezuela itself. And even such a question was not raised. They are afraid, however, of the main guarantor of everything in the world. laughing

      And they had debts at UNESCO!

      But with this advice - generally on the verge of complete humor. The veto was not used; instead, they think of getting out of it. laughing

    “Do not delay the departing, do not drive away the comer” (Japanese proverb). Or maybe they just decided to save money?
    US President Donald Trump said in his microblog that during the month of his reign he managed to reduce government debt by about 0,1% and complained that the media did not cover this topic.

    "The media did not report that the public debt during my first month fell by 12 billion dollars compared with an increase of 200 billion dollars for Obama's first month" - Donald Trump

    At the UN, the "movement" began:
    Venezuela, Libya, Sudan and three other countries lost their voting rights at the General Assembly due to arrears in contributions to the UN budget. This was announced on Friday by the official representative of the Secretary General of the World Organization Stefan Dujarric. According to the 19-th article of the Charter of the United Nations, a member of the organization "is deprived of the right to vote in the General Assembly if the amount of his arrears equals or exceeds the amount of contributions due from him for two full previous years." Depriving countries of their voting rights in the General Assembly is not uncommon. Last January, Venezuela found itself in such a situation, as well as Iran and five other states. Within a month, they paid off their debts and regained their voting rights.

When our guys cut their throats in Dagestan, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine shot civilian cars - all these "pocket truths" condemned us for this: "Russia is a barbaric country and dares to resist democracy." ...

    Thus they will give out one of the great fictions, which have already been 237 years old - there are no such “human rights” as an object at all. Like Freedom-Equality-Brotherhood. There are certain methods of government that give each individual person something, limit something, and it is not at all fair. There are interstate, or other inter ... communal competitive frictions, the instrument of which, the mentioned "human rights" are, among other ideological struggles.
    So, after Vladimir Semenovich: "Freedom to Angela Davis!" For us, this is actually no more important than "try jaga-jaga!" Katie Lel, but the American imperialists will once again insert a finger ...
