Good morning, this is Kasmira. The Human Rights Council is limbering up for one of its longest sessions yet, starting next Monday. Its recently elected president, Moroccan ambassador Omar Zniber, spoke to Geneva Solutions on navigating an increasingly polarised backdrop and the UN’s liquidity crunch.

Elsewhere, differences are persisting between World Health Organization member states over the pandemic agreement and the uncertain fate of the Palestinian refugee agency is continuing to cause a rift between the US and the UN.
