Vice President Mike Pence followed into President Trump’s footsteps and held an address at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City Wednesday. As he speech went on, Pence noted the U.N. Human Rights Council “attracts and welcomes many of the worst human rights violators in the world.”
“A clear majority of the Human Rights Council’s members fail to meet even the most basic human rights standards,” Pence said.
Pence did not think twice before naming names:
“Cuba sits on the Human Rights Council, an oppressive regime that has repressed its people and jailed political opponents for more than half a century. Venezuela sits on the Human Rights Council, a dictatorship that undermines democracy at every turn imprisons political opponents, and, as we speak, is advancing policies that worsen deprivation and poverty that is costing the lives of innocent men, women, and children.”
He deliberately and clearly asked the U.N. Human Rights Council to make necessary amends and introduce reforms to restructure itself.
“This body must reform the Human Rights Council’s membership and its operation,” he added.
