World criticizes Trump for a decision on WHO

Trump decides to stop WHO funding in the midst of a pandemic

The day before, the American president instructed to suspend contributions to WHO while analyzing its work.

The US decision to suspend funding for the World Health Organization will weaken the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. This was announced on Wednesday, April 15, by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China Zhao Lijian.

“China expresses serious concern about the US decision to suspend contributions to the WHO budget. This United States decision will weaken the organization’s ability and undermine international cooperation. It will affect all countries, including the United States. We urge the United States to take its commitments seriously and support Whose leadership, “said the diplomat.

He noted the role of WHO in overcoming the international crisis. “Since the outbreak of COVID-19, WHO has played a central role in coordinating international efforts that have been praised by the international community. The current situation in the fight against the epidemic is at a crucial stage,” he said.

Lijiang added that “China will, as always, support WHO and play an important role in international efforts to respond to the pandemic.”

Also, there was no excuse for the decision of Donald Trump, the head of the diplomacy of the European Union, Josep Borrell.

“I deeply regret the US decision to suspend WHO funding. There is no reason to justify this step at a time when its efforts are needed more than ever to help curb and weaken the coronavirus pandemic,” he said.

In turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry called Trump's decision a search for the mythical perpetrators of the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier it was reported that the US president instructed his administration to suspend contributions to WHO while it was analyzing its work. Because of this, the organization will receive less than hundreds of millions of dollars.
