The United States does not see the benefit of this resolution.
While the United States remains concerned about the Human Rights Council's disproportionate focus on Israel, there have been significant improvements over the past year in the Council's ability to serve as a multilateral forum for promoting and protecting human rights. Some of the HRC's noteworthy accomplishments include: an historic resolution on LGBT human rights, an OIC-led resolution that promotes religious tolerance, Commissions of Inquiry on Cote d'Ivoire, Libya, and Syria, a new Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, and cooperative technical assistance resolutions on Guinea, Kyrgyzstan, South Sudan, Tunisia, and Yemen among others.
