The US authorities plan to work with partners to reform the World Health Organization (WHO), Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said at a meeting of the UN Security Council on measures taken to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
He added that the US government intends to reform the organization to “support the global health agenda, ensure sustainable readiness for biological threats, and create a warning system.” Writes about this TASS.
The United States also intends to contribute $ 200 million to the WHO budget by the end of the month, Blinken said.
Earlier, the 46th President of the United States Joe Biden signed a series of decrees overturning the decisions of the former head of state, Donald Trump.
In particular, he signed an order to return the country to WHO. In July last year, Trump sent a notice to Congress about the country’s withdrawal from the World Health Organization, because, according to Trump, WHO refused to carry out the required reforms and hid the scale of the COVID-19 epidemic in the interests of China.
