US talks tough to UN on allowing human rights violators as representatives

The U.S. ambassador spoke strongly to the U.N. on whether the Security Council respects human rights.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, brought up an ongoing problem at the U.N.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in front of this body on an issue that we believe is very important—respect for human rights. As you know the United States is looking carefully at this council and our participation in it. We see some areas for significant strengthening,” she said.

The United States is critical of the U.N. giving countries that violate human rights membership.
