The United States will intersection the United Nations Human Rights Council as an observer after more than two years of absence.

 

The American diplomat Mark Cassayre said this on Monday in Geneva, where the body meets with 47 member states.

Former President Donald Trump announced the US withdrawal from the organization in June 2018 due to perceived bias against Israel and lack of reform.

Cassayre pointed out the board’s flaws, but said that “we know this body has the latent to be an imperative forum for those fighting tyranny and injustice everywhere the world.”

Trump, with his America First agenda, has caused the US to withdraw from multiple international organizations. His successor Joe Biden has already undone some of those steps.

He does believe in international cooperation.
