Facing an embarrassing defeat in a vote at the UN Human Rights Council, The Netherlands has withdrawn from consideration its draft resolution which sought to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the killings of civilians by its coalition forces in Yemen. The resolution had called for "11. Requests the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to dispatch a mission, with assistance from relevant experts, to monitor and report on the human rights situation in Yemen, on violations and abuses of human rights and on violations of international humanitarian law since September 2014, and to collect and conserve information in order to establish the facts and circumstances of such violations, while stressing the need to ensure the safety and security of mission personnel;"
Instead, the UN Human Rights Council will vote on the draft resolution submitted by Saudi Arabia which merely "10. Requests the High Commissioner, while allocating sufficient staff, in coordination with the Government of Yemen, to provide technical assistance and to work with the Government of Yemen, as required, in the field of capacity-building and to identify additional areas of assistance to enable Yemen to fulfil its human rights obligations; and specifically requests the Office of the High Commissioner to assist the national independent commission of inquiry in meeting in its work in accordance to international obligations, as mandated in Presidential Decree 140/2012;"
Saudi Arabia is a member of the Human Rights Council. Running its own resolution is one of the perks of membership.
