United States of America: Joint NGO letter re: US decision to resign from Human Rights Council

, Index number: AMR 51/8675/2018

In this letter, NGOs respond to Ambassador Haley's letter of 20 June 2018, in which it was suggested that NGOs are somehow responsible for the US decision to withdraw from the Human Rights Council. The decision to resign from the Council was that of the US administration alone. The organizations had legitimate concerns that the US’s proposal to reopen the Council’s institutional framework at the General Assembly would do more harm than good and see it as their responsibility to express those concerns and would do so again.
