US President Donal Trump’s decision to halt funding to the World Health Organisation over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic is “indefensible”, Irish foreign minister and deputy prime minister Simon Coveney has said.
This is indefensible decision, in midst of global pandemic. So many vulnerable populations rely on @WHO – deliberately undermining funding & trust now is shocking. Now is a time for global leadership & unity to save lives, not division and blame! https://t.co/nOknZnBqDd
