The Human Rights Council — home to Saudi Arabia, Cuba and other rights abusers — has rarely, if ever, lived up to its name. But that doesn’t mean that today’s meeting is without merit. China can be sensitive to diplomatic pressure on human rights. During the U.N. review last year of China’s commitments as a signatory to the Convention Against Torture, the delegation from Beijing was forced to provide information that otherwise might never have seen the light of day.
