Since U.S. President Donald Trump made his debut at the United Nations a year ago pushing an “America First” policy, he has quit the Iran nuclear deal, the U.N. Human Rights Council and lashed out at some of the closest allies of the United States. “It is not saying multilateralism can’t work. But it’s saying sovereignty is a priority over all of that,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said, previewing Trump’s address on Tuesday at the annual U.N. General Assembly.
US’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said: “Russia can’t be allowed to edit and obstruct independent UN reports on North Korea sanctions just because they don’t like what they say.” She accused the UN panel of “caving to Russian pressure” and making changes to its report. “This is a dangerous precedent and a stain on the important work of the Panel,” Haley said, calling for the initial version of the report — dating from early August — to be published.
