As we reported earlier, the White House is willing to resume cooperation with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

Biden's administration believes that the OHCHR must be reformed, and the most effective way to make it happen is to cooperate with it, abiding by the principles.

"We intend to do so knowing that the most effective way to reform and improve the Council is to engage with it in a principled fashion," said Secretary of the State Anthony Blinken.
