It is clear that the decision came after a major setback for Saudi Arabia in the United Nations Human Rights Council, as it did not get a seat for membership in this committee.
In the General Assembly, where the decision was made by the 194 states, the traditional Saudi means of pressure seemed to be without effect. Threats to cut funding for international organizations have no value, as happened in 2016 when Riyadh used this paper and the former Secretary General Ban Ki-moon complied with it and withdrew its name from the UN black list of violations against children.
