Israel suspended participation in the UN Human Rights Council. This is reported by the Associated Press.

"The diplomats said on Friday that Israel temporarily suspended its participation in the main UN body on human rights a few days after the United States announced the Council's bias against Israel," the publication noted.

According to diplomats in Geneva, Israel suspended its participation in the Council in order to more accurately bring its position closer to the position of the United States.

At the same time, according to diplomats, such a decision by Israel is not final and may change in the near future.

We recall that the US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced the withdrawal of the United States from the UN Human Rights Council.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres did not support such a decision of the United States.

But the Israeli Prime Minister thanked the United States for seceding from the UN Human Rights Council. According to him, for many years the Council has been prejudiced, hostile and anti-Israeli.

After such a decision of the US, Russian Federation nominated its candidacy for elections to the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) for 2021-2023.
