In her speech, the United States diplomat accused a number of nations of impeding the UN Human Rights Council reform.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted his thanks to the Trump administration for withdrawing from the "so-called" human rights council.

It also follows an uproar over President Donald Trump's controversial immigration policy, which is causing major human rights abuses by separating children from undocumented parents who crossed the USA border seeking a better life. During a 2017 speech to the council, Haley announced the USA would leave the organization if its members continued to adopt resolutions that singled out Israel, while ignoring human rights violations committed by other countries.

No one would argue that the UN Human Rights Council isn't a noble idea.

This wouldn't be the first time the US has declined to be a part of the council.

Haley said that "chronic bias against Israel" is one of the reasons the U.S. will quit the UNHRC and that it is a "Hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of Human Rights".

The Trump administration plans to announce its withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday, making good on a pledge to leave a body it has long accused of hypocrisy and criticized as biased against Israel, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The UN set up the council in 2006 to replace the UN Commission on Human Rights, which faced widespread criticism for letting countries with poor human rights records become members.

Uruguay strike late to break Egypt's hearts
Though he quickly added he thinks Salah will be ready for Tuesday's crucial match against Russian Federation in St. He was an unused substitute in Egypt's 1-0 loss to Uruguay on Friday - his birthday.

"And the council's continued and well-documented bias against Israel is unconscionable", he said.

The decision will leave the USA without a vote and instead be sidelined from the body, which aims to promote human rights around the globe. Ambassador Haley has accused the council of a "relentless, pathological campaign" against Israel, and said the United States would leave unless the body gets rid of its "chronic anti-Israel bias".

"When the Human Rights Council treats Israel worse than North Korea, Iran, and Syria, it is the Council itself that is foolish and unworthy of its name".

Twelve human rights and aid groups, including Human Rights First, Save the Children and CARE, have warned the withdrawal would "make it more hard to advance human rights priorities and aid victims of abuse around the world".

Hussein condemned the United States' decision to leave the council on Tuesday.

It has a permanent standing agenda item on suspected violations committed by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories that Washington wants removed.

"This decision is counterproductive to American national security and foreign policy interests and will make it more hard to advance human rights priorities and aid victims of abuse around the world", they added.

Haley has warned the council a year ago that the United States would withdraw from the council if changes were not made. Under President Barack Obama's administration, the USA officially joined the UNHRC in 2009.
