U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley Slams UN For Electing Human Rights Abusers Into The Council

 

 

 

UNITED NATIONS – Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley criticized the U.N. Friday after its General Assembly elected new members to the controversial Human Rights Council — including countries with poor human rights records.

The 18 new members were selected from five regional blocs of countries, and their elections were largely predetermined since they were not challenged by other countries.

Of the 18, six are classified by U.N. Watch, a human rights watch group based in Switzerland, as human rights abusers — Somalia, Eritrea, Cameroon, Bangladesh, Philippines and Bahrain. Those countries will join other countries with poor human rights records, such as Cuba, China, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, on the world’s top human rights body.

While other countries with stronger human rights records were voted in — such as Argentina, Czech Republic and Denmark — the addition of those with poor records was cited as evidence by Haley that the U.S. was right to withdraw from the body earlier this year.

“Today, the U.N. chose new members for the Human Rights Council. Yet again, countries with poor human rights records ran uncontested. This lack of standards continues to undermine the organization and demonstrates again why the United States was right to withdraw from it earlier this year,” she said in a statement.

    Cameroun has been newly voted as member of the UN security council members after killing and destroying Ambazonian citizens. If this is the way this assembly operates, mankind should be warned of what may come next in Ambazonia such as more killings, rape, detentions, burning of homes and extra judicial killings by biya’s regime. However, we will continue to resist this injustice mated on us by biya, UN, AU and the EU. God is our HOPE and RESCUE.

    The UN is not God.

    Even if God accepts that devil Paul Biya and the nation of LRC into
    Gods Rights Council in heaven, they still can not defeat Ambazonia.

    Ambazonians who are focus cannot be troubled by low life actions like this.

    Ambazonia rise never to fall.

      Please check the meaning of putative in the english language.
      I suspect that you are using it in a wrong context here, both from a semantic and pragmatic view point.

      Also, it is not good netiquette to write in all capitals. There is no reason to “scream” if you have something valuable to say.

    The same USA is carrying on with it’s huge arms deal with Saudi Arabia and the Saudi’s are the largest single foreign investors in the US economy.
    This is all geopolitics. The US has to appear in the face of the world as standing for human rights.
    Anyone who still believes that or attaches more importance to it than it deserves is being naive.

    World politics is about how strong you are and how many friends you have who matter.
    One nation may be your friend in one thing and your enemy in another.

    Only black Africa does not understand that.
