EU URGES TRUMP TO RECONSIDER WHO WITHDRAWAL
EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Vice-President Josep Borrell have issued a statement urging US President Donald Trump to reconsider his decision of withdrawing from the World Health Organization.
"Global cooperation and solidarity through multilateral efforts are the only effective and viable means of winning this battle that the world is facing. WHO must continue to be able to lead the international response to pandemics, current and future. For this, the participation and support of all are necessary and essential.", the statement reads.
"Actions that weaken international results should be avoided. In this context, we urge the United States to reconsider the decision it announced.”
