The United States on Tuesday held what it dubbed a historic U.N. Security Council meeting on the link between rights abuses and conflict. However, it dropped a push for the broad issue to become a council fixture after at least six members opposed it. Diplomats said Russia, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan and Bolivia were against the move. The U.S., which is the council president for April, did not risk the measure being put to a rare procedural vote as Senegal's support was uncertain. The opposing council members say rights discussion should be confined to the Geneva-based Human Rights Council, which has been accused of being anti-Israel.
