Western nations boycott UNHRC’s Agenda Item 7 debate in which countries discuss Israel

Western states on Monday boycotted the Agenda 7 debate at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, in which over 35 countries attacked Israeli human rights abuses against the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

“We urge all member states to actively participate in Agenda Item 7,” said Pakistan’s Deputy Representative Aamar Aftab Qureshi.
It was one of a number of states which took issue with the absence of Western states in the debate, which they said undermined the credibility of the council.
