The United States wants to return to the Human Rights Council after the Trump boycott


The United States will apply to join the UN Human Rights Council later this year. This is what the US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, said on Wednesday during a video meeting with the council.

It was a piece of advice that the United States left in 2018 under former President Donald Trump.

In his address to the UN Human Rights Council, Blinken says that President Joe Biden’s government will work to remove what he calls the UN agency’s disproportionate focus’ on Israel.

The United States joined the Human Rights Council as an observer earlier this month. It was yet another sign that Biden’s government is seeking more cooperation with the rest of the world than its predecessor.

“I am pleased to announce that the United States will seek election to the Human Rights Council for the period 2022 to 2024. We humbly ask for the support of all UN member states in our desire to return to a seat on this body,” Blinken said.
