The administration of President Donald trump is considering withdrawal from the Council for human rights of the UN, writes Politico, citing several former and current officials.
As noted, this issue will be resolved before the next Council session, which begins on Monday, February 27. However, the discussion of such possibility is.
The final decision on membership in the Council are likely to accept the Secretary of state Rex Tillerson, the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, as well as the trump.
As noted, in Washington, in particular, believe that the Council was biased against Israel, promoting the UN decision contrary to it. Unlike the previous President Barack Obama, trump is a consistently Pro-Israel.
Shortly before the termination of the tenure of Obama, 23 December 2016, the UN security Council demanded that Israel cease construction of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. The resolution was supported by all members of the security Council. Due to the fact that the US abstained but did not veto, the document was adopted. Tel Aviv refused to do it.
