Dear MEL Topic Readers,

US withdraws from UN Human Rights Council

Another US withdrawal from international efforts. Last year, the Trump administration announced to withdraw from the global compact for migration, an inter-governmental agreement to cover all dimensions of international migration under the UN auspices. Also, the administration of the world’s second-largest greenhouse gas emitter retreated from the Paris climate agreement, the international effort to address dangerous global warming.

Now, one of the founding members of the United Nations, and also one of the permanent members of the Security Council has announced that it withdraws from the UN Human Rights Council, or UNHRC, a UN body to promote and protect human rights around the world.

Though the administration had threatened the UN body for its retreat for about a year, this sudden announcement was made just a day after President Trump’s immigration policy that separates families at the US-Mexican border was accused by the High Commissioner.

What’s the next war front, trade or non-proliferation of nuclear weapons?

Enjoy reading and think if the world is reading the prologue to a new world order.
