(CNSNews.com) – Amid continuing calls to reduce U.S. funding of the United Nations, two senior Obama administration officials this week gave speeches asserting the importance of full – and fully-paid up – engagement with the world body.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice addressed the United Nations Association of the United States (UNA-USA) on Monday, urging the advocacy group to help the administration make the case to the American people that “the U.N. plays an indispensable role in advancing our interests and defending our values.”

On Wednesday Esther Brimmer, the assistant secretary of state for international organization affairs, took the message to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, arguing that the administration was successfully countering anti-Israel bias at international forums, particularly the U.N. and its Human Rights Council (HRC).

Both Rice and Brimmer referred to calls by U.N. critics for the U.S. to reduce funding.

Republicans in the House Foreign Affairs Committee want U.S. contributions to be linked to the implementation of reforms at the U.N.
