U.S. to Cut Funding for UN Human Rights Office – Jamey Keaten

National security adviser John Bolton told AP in an interview that the U.S. will cut funding for the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, which it left in June. “We are going to de-fund the Human Rights Council,” Bolton said. The U.S. pays 22% of the UN budget. Bolton said, “We’ll calculate 22% of the Human Rights Council and the High Commissioner’s budget, and our remittances to the UN for this budget year will be less 22% of those costs.”  (AP-Boston Globe)
