The New York Post reported that the Biden administration has been aiming to convince the UNHRC to readmit the United States.
The American ambassador to the UN told a virtual National Action Network conference this week that the “imperfect union” of America should advance “equity and justice at the global scale … with humility”.
“We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union — and have been since the beginning — and every day we strive to make ourselves more perfect, and more just. In a diverse country like ours, that means committing to do the work,” the representative said.
She told the UNHRC, which includes China, Cuba, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and North Korea, that the US needed to “engage trailblazing groups like yours” in order to “improve”. Curiously, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken did not appear to want to learn anything, at least from China. He had warned China a week ago to cease “acts of genocide” against Muslim Uyghurs in its Xinjiang region, denouncing China’s “egregious” human rights violations.
At the beginning on March 1, 2021 the United States became president of the United Nations Security Council, thus Greenfield became president of the council as head of the United States delegation. Her term ended on March 31, 2021.
