Why We’re Leaving the So-Called Human Rights Council Allies said U.S. participation was the last shred of credibility left in the organization.By Nikki Haley


There is an international organization whose members include the repressive regimes of Cuba, Venezuela and China. This organization recently added the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In the past decade, this organization has passed more resolutions to condemn Israel specifically than to condemn Syria, Iran and North Korea combined. We are therefore withdrawing from the U.N. Human Rights Council, an organization that is unworthy of its name. But even as we depart, our commitment to human rights will remain steady as ever, and our voice will only get louder.
