Western push on China, Russia at UN rights body faces test

1/10/2022 18:48
        Western countries are leading a rare two-pronged push at the U.N.'s main human rights body to better scrutinize the human rights records of two big world powers: China, over allegations of abuses during an anti-extremism campaign in western Xinjiang, and Russia, over its government's crackdown on dissent and protest against the war in Ukraine.
        
        Going after two such influential U.N. members — two of the five permanent members of the Security Council no less — at the same time will be no small political task, diplomats and rights advocates say. It testifies to a growing rift between democracies and more autocratic countries, and is shaping up as a gamble of geopolitical clout, the outcome of which will resonate beyond the Geneva conference room where the Human Rights Council meets.
        
        Some Western diplomats insist it's now or never, and say it just so happens the two issues need separate attention.
