The UN is not completely silent on China

Ban Ki-moon and Navi Pillay may not be attending the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony as their presence might offend the Chinese government but the UN is not completely silent on China and human rights.

UN watch reports
that the U.N. European Headquarters in Geneva today hosted a massive photo exhibit extolling China's human rights record and its alleged respect for Uyghurs, Tibetans and other minority groups, displayed next to the U.N. human rights office event marking international Human Rights Day.
Can anybody explain to me why the UN cannot be closed down immediately as an organization whose marginal usefulness stopped a very long time ago. As it happens, I do not believe even in that marginal usefulness, set up as it was according to Soviet ideas of international law and human rights.
