The United States has announced its withdrawal from the United Nations' main human rights body. In a statement to the media in Washington on June 19, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the UN Human Rights Council "continues politicizing and scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in their ranks."
