Expectations of Washington's withdrawal from the Human Rights Council

Expectations of Washington's withdrawal from the Human Rights Council

Activists and diplomats said talks with the United States on how to reform the UN Human Rights Council failed to meet Washington's demands.
A US source said the withdrawal appeared "imminent" but did not elaborate. Diplomatic sources said the question was not whether Washington would withdraw from the Geneva-based council but when it would do so.
Diplomats and activists who took part in the talks in Geneva and New York for months said they could not reach a consensus on the new agenda.
"The Americans' decision will have a profound impact on the Council," said Swiss delegate to the council Valentin Zellweger. We have to expect serious consequences if they withdraw. "
"The United States has long played a leading role in the council," he said. "Unfortunately, I agree that the criteria for membership are not applied by some members."
US envoy to the United Nations Nicky Healy told the council last year that Washington might withdraw from him unless "chronic bias against Israel" stops.
The US administration has yet to announce its decision in this regard, but any suspension of membership or withdrawal will follow a series of US rejection of multilateral communication after its withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement and agreement with major powers over Iran's nuclear program.
The United States says the council is full of opponents of Israel and boycotted three years under President George W. Bush before returning to it during Barack Obama's 2009 presidency.
The 47-member Human Rights Council issued a resolution last month calling for an investigation into deaths in Gaza and accused Israel of using excessive force. The United States and Australia are the only two countries to vote against the resolution. Aviva Raz Sheikter, Israel's ambassador to the UN headquarters in Geneva, criticized the council for "spreading lies against Israel."
The Human Rights Council will open a session on Monday that will last for three weeks until July 6.
