Israel calls for abolishing UNHRC's anti-Israel agenda

The Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations in Geneva has called for the immediate abolition of UN Human Rights Council permanent agenda "Item 7", its related resolutions and the anti-Israel behavioral patterns across the UN system. Item 7 is a springboard for an Israel-bashing session at the council's annual meeting.

Ambassador Aviva Raz Shechter, Permanent Representative of Israel to the UN in Geneva, said, “The Human Rights Council is obsessed with Israel and continues to lose its standing.” She added that “The item 7 discussions and related resolutions, as well as Michael Lynk’s report, should be treated the same way the latest ESCWA report was: disregarded and stopped.”
