UN warns against ‘abrupt funding cuts’ stemming from US budget

UNUnited Nations has warned that its operations could suffer if the United States were to slash funding to the world body as called for in President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal. Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters that Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is totally committed to reforming the United Nations and ensuring that it is fit for purpose and delivers results in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.

The secretary general, who took office at the start of the year, has met several times with Washington’s ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley.

Trump’s budget proposal calls for a cut in US funding to the UN, and says Washington would not contribute more than 25 percent for UN peacekeeping costs.
