Outgoing U.N. Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay talks during an interview to Reuters in her office in GenevaBy Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Outgoing U.N. rights chief Navi Pillay rebuked the U.N. Security Council on Thursday for putting short-term geopolitical concerns and narrowly-defined national interests ahead of intolerable human suffering and grave breaches of global peace and security. "I firmly believe that greater responsiveness by this council would have saved hundreds of thousands of lives," Pillay told the 15-member body during her final briefing after six years as the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights. She said crises in Syria, Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Gaza, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Ukraine "hammer home" the international community's failure to prevent conflict. They built up over years - and sometimes decades - of human rights grievances," said Pillay, a South African jurist.
