Russia: Lavrov hopes US UN Human Rights Council withdrawal ‘not final’

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow hopes for the return of the United States to the UN Human Rights Council, as he spoke in Moscow on Thursday at a joint press conference with Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres. «We hope that this decision is not final and the United States would reaffirm its commitment to the United Nations, particularly in an... Еще important area such as human rights», said Lavrov. Guterres backed the position of Russian FM, stating that UN «would of course much prefer for the Unites States to remain in the Human Rights Council.» US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley had announced that the US is withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council on June 19th, following the Council's vote last month to probe killings of Palestinian protesters in Gaza.
