UN human rights chief disappointed US is leaving

The president of the UN Human Rights Council is acknowledging the "prerogative" of the United States to leave the 47-member body, while the UN human rights chief called it "disappointing, if not really surprising," that the US was pulling out.


Vojislav Suc of Slovenia, who holds the council annually rotating presidency, defended the council on Tuesday after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US Ambassador Nikki Haley announced the United States is quitting the Geneva body.
