EU's Borrell: No justification for US move on WHO

There is no justification for the decision of the United States to halt World Health Organization (WHO) funding, European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said on Wednesday.

Borrell tweeted: "Deeply regret US decision to suspend funding to @WHO. There is no reason justifying this move at a moment when their efforts are needed more than ever to help contain & mitigate the #coronavirus pandemic. Only by joining forces we can overcome this crisis that knows no borders."

Earlier, similar comments were made by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as well as foreign ministries of Russia and China as they all agreed that reducing funding to the UN agency during a global pandemic was not a desireable move.
