Citing antisemitism concerns, UK won’t attend Durban conference anniversary

The United Kingdom says it will not attend an event to mark the anniversary of the UN’s 2001 Durban conference against racism, which Israel and the US walked out of in protest of countries’ advancement of a motion equating Zionism and racism.

“Following historic concerns regarding antisemitism, the UK has decided not to attend the UN’s Durban Conference anniversary event, later this year,” Britain’s Foreign Office says in a statement.
