United States Reelection to the Human Rights Council

Press Statement

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State

Washington, DC
November 12, 2012

The United States is pleased to have been elected by the United Nations General Assembly to a second term on the Human Rights Council. We thank the countries that voted for us in what was a highly competitive race among several qualified Western candidates that are all strong champions of human rights. We pledge to continue to work closely with the international community to address urgent and serious human rights concerns worldwide and to strengthen the Council. While much hard work remains to be done, especially ending the Council’s disproportionate and biased focus on Israel, we look forward to cooperating with other Council members to continue to address human rights concerns and to ensure that the Council fully realizes its promise.
