Tillerson To U.N. Rights Council: Reform or We’re Leaving

The Trump administration puts the human rights body on notice in a letter obtained by FP.

The correspondence, obtained by Foreign Policy, explains the Trump administration’s rationale for considering a departure from the 47-member organization. An immediate withdrawal from the Council, however, is not imminent, multiple State Department aides told FP. The Council has a small window of time to redeem itself in the eyes of Washington.
