Sarah Zaman in “View 360” covered these topics:
• The Trump administration is withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council because of what U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley described as its ‘hypocrisy’ and bias against Israel.
• Taliban militants have killed around 30 Afghan security forces in multiple attacks in western Afghanistan.
Militants ambushed a reinforcement convoy and also stormed bases overnight, killing police officers and soldiers, Badghis provincial governor Abdul Qhafoor Malikzai said.
• World Refugee Day is held on 20 June every year to draw attention to the plight of displaced people around the globe.
Inaugurated by the UN Refugee Agency, the occasion was first observed in 2001, 50 years on from the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees in Geneva, Switzerland, which defined the term and agreed on the responsibilities of nations to grant asylum to those rendered stateless by warfare, famine or natural disasters and most vulnerable to persecution.
