Rubio Supports U.S. Withdrawal from U.N. Human Rights Council

Jun 19, 2018 | Press Releases

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after the U.S. announced it is withdrawing from the U.N. Human Rights Council:

“I applaud President Trump and Ambassador Haley’s bold leadership in withdrawing the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council. It is a travesty that countries such as Venezuela, China, and Cuba would even be considered for membership on this council. Governments that persecute people of faith, imprison dissidents, repress free speech and violate other basic human rights have no business participating in an international body purportedly committed to ending human rights abuses. I am gravely concerned that U.S. security partners such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt also continue to fall in this category, and I implore them to fundamentally improve their human rights practices.

“If the U.N. Human Rights Council wants to maintain any shred of credibility, basic respect for and protection of human rights must be a prerequisite for membership and the council must end its hostility toward Israel. Until that is the case, the United States should have nothing to do with this broken institution.”
