After Year of Frozen Ties Israel Looking to Mend Ties With UN Rights Council, but Says 'Built-in Discrimination' Must End

Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin says Israel froze ties with UN Human Rights council last year because of its 'anti-Semitism' and anti-Israel agenda.

Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin confirmed on Tuesday that Israel is working to resume ties with the Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council. But he warned that any such resumption will depend on the council changing its “built-in discrimination” against Israel.
