Let America know that the United Nations has been a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council for three years. This council had just completed one and a half years of America. The news came in the past that the reforms in the council had not been agreed and the demands of the US were not considered. From then on it was coming to the news that the US would withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council. The formal announcement of the withdrawal of this Council of America had ceased, which has happened today.
America also boycotted the Human Rights Council for three years during the reign of former President George W. Bush, but after becoming President of Obama, he joined the Council again in 2009.
