U.S. Proposes two Goals For Human Rights Commission

U.S. State Department:

"'This important body should not be allowed to become a protected sanctuary for human rights violators who aim to pervert and distort its work,' Williamson said in his first statement to the 60th session of the commission.

A second goal of reform should be to re-establish the importance of implementation of treaties and other human rights obligations, Williamson added. 'Far too many governments, including profoundly repressive ones, have cynically ratified and then ignored major human rights treaties. The commission should seek to rectify this hypocrisy.'"


Still no word on whether the U.S. will sponsor a resolution condemning China;s human rights record.

I am still betting it will not happen.
