Thank you, Chairperson.

The United States agrees with the important concepts on non-selectivity, impartiality, and objectivity, and finds the UN’s, and particularly the Human Rights Council’s, anti-Israel bias inexcusable.

With regard to other references in this resolution, we addressed our concerns in a separate general statement on November 7.

Thank you, Chairperson.
