HE NEVER TIRES OF GRABBING HIS ANKLES:

U.S. backs out of UNSC meeting on North Korea's human rights (Japan Times, DEC 10, 2019)

The United States changed its mind and is now refusing to sign a letter that would have authorized the U.N. Security Council to hold a meeting Tuesday on the human rights situation in North Korea, diplomats said Monday.

Without support from the United States, European and other countries that wanted the U.N.'s most powerful body to discuss human rights in North Korea can't go ahead because they are now one vote short of the minimum nine "yes" votes required, the diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because discussions were private.
