미국, 코로나19로 WHO 자금 지원 중단한다

미국 도널드 트럼프 대통령은 14일(현지시간) 미 행정부에 세계보건기구(WHO)에 대한 자금 지원을 중단하라고 지시했다고 밝혔다. 그는 WHO가 신종 코로나바이러스 감염증(코로나19) 대응 과정에서 "기본 임무에 실패했다"고 말했다. 앞서 그는 중국에서 바이러스가 처음 발생한 뒤, WHO가 이를 제대로 관리하지 못했고 확산 사실을 은폐했다면서 책임을 져야 한다고 비난했다. 한편, 트럼프 대통령은 코로나19 대처로 자국에서 비판을 받아왔다. 이날 백악관에서 열린 기자회견에서 그는 "WHO 역할에 대한 평가가 진행되는 동안 미 행정부에 자금 지원 중단을 지시했다. 이 기구는 코로나19를 심각하게 잘못 관리했고, 확산을 은폐했다"고 말했다. "WHO는 기본 임무에 실패했다. 반드시 책임을 져야 한다."트럼프 대통령 발언에 대해 유엔 안토니오 구테헤스 사무총장은 지금은 WHO에 주는 자원을 줄일 때가 아니라고 말했다. 미국은 WHO의 가장 큰 단일 자금 지원처로, 지난해 기구 총 예산의 약 15%에 가까운 4억달러(약 4864억원)를 냈다. WHO홈페이지에 따르면 2018-19년 중국의 지원금은 7600만달러(약 924억원)였다. 추가로 자발적인 지원금이...
