Ukraine looks forward to working closely with the United States to promote democracy, human rights and equality worldwide, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said on Monday.

"Ukraine welcomes U.S. decision to reengage with the United Nations Human Rights Council. As the Council’s member, Ukraine looks forward to working closely with the U.S. to promote democracy, human rights and equality worldwide," Kuleba wrote on his Twitter account.

On February 8, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that the United States is reengaging with the United Nations Human Rights Council.

"The UN Human Rights Council is flawed and needs reform, but walking away won’t fix it. The best way to improve the Council, so it can achieve its potential, is through robust and principled U.S. leadership. Under President Joe Biden, we are reengaging and ready to lead," he tweeted.
