WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States withdrew from the U.N. Human Rights Council on Tuesday after no other countries “had the courage to join our fight” to reform the “hypocritical and self-serving” body, said U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
“In doing so, I want to make it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from our human rights commitments,” Haley said.
