Trump and Macron’s phone conversation over the weekend

Washington / The President of the United States, Donald Trump, and his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, agreed on Sunday on the need to reform the World Health Organization (WHO), during a telephone conversation, the White House said in a statement.

During the call, “they discussed positive progress in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and progress towards reopening the world economies. The two leaders expressed their hope that P5 (the five permanent members of the Security Council) will meet and analyze the UN’s response to the pandemic, “reads the note.

Both “agreed on the need to reform the World Health Organization,” said the text, adding that they also discussed “critical regional and bilateral issues.”

In the middle of this month, Trump ordered to freeze the funds with which the US it contributed to WHO funding, after complaining about the organization’s management of the coronavirus crisis.

The US president justified his decision by the WHO’s opposition to the closure of borders to combat the spread of the virus, for not having acted before and for having not only trusted, but also “praised” the Chinese government.

France regretted that decision and reiterated its commitment, and “especially that of the President of the Republic”, to multilateralism, said the spokeswoman for the French Council of Ministers, Sibeth Ndiaye.

Days later, during a virtual meeting of the G7 leaders, organized under the Trump presidency, Macron himself defended the role of the WHO and stressed “the central role that it must have in relation to all states, institutions international and programs dedicated to the vaccine, health and strengthening health systems “, according to Elíseo.
