China has criticized the US for its official move to withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO), Reuters reported.
China noted that this step will create complications for developing countries.
Beijing calls on the international community to support WHO, the Chinese MFA spokesperson Zhao Lijian noted.
The UN said on Tuesday that the US would leave WHO on July 6, 2021.
The White House has officially moved to withdraw the US from the World Health Organization (WHO), The Hill reported referring to a senior administration official. According to the official, the US has already submitted its withdrawal notification to the UN secretary-general.
Sen. Bob Menendez noted that the administration informed Congress of the withdrawal plans. "To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn't do it justice. This won't protect American lives or interests — it leaves Americans sick & America alone," he tweeted.
