Securing America: U.N. Human Rights Council
The Obama Administration wins a different kind of reelection at the United Nations.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady explains as part of our on-going series on national security:
Five countries competed for three western seats on the U.N.’s Human Rights Council. The U.S., Germany and Ireland won. Greece and Sweden lost. Wanting to be on the council was a departure from Bush Administration policy which boycotted it for repeatedly criticizing Israel and failing to call out human rights abuses.
Rice: “Across the board, there’s been real important progress and we’ve been proud to be part of that.”
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, acknowledging the council has its flaws.
Rice: “We’re convinced that we are more likely and better positioned to strengthen the Human Rights Council by continuing our participation in it.”
And she says the U.S. reelection to the council shows the international community agrees with the effort to make it more effective.
