Israel has suspended participation in the UN Human Rights Council several days after the release of the United States.

This is written by the Associated Press.

It is reported that the diplomats were not publicly authorized to discuss this issue, but they said on anonymity that Israel had brought its position closer to the United States.

Diplomats have warned that this step is not final and may change. Israel is not one of the 47 member states of the Council, but participated as an observer, like most other countries.

Ukraine supported the United States in their decision to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council . The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said that the UN is currently in crisis.
