US blocks UN global ceasefire resolution over its support for WHO

WASHINGTON has blocked a UN security council resolution calling for a global ceasefire during the Covid-19 pandemic over objections to an indirect reference seen as praising the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The US used its veto despite the resolution being watered down in a bid to accommodate US misgivings after China initially insisted the resolution include support for the WHO efforts in dealing with the coronavirus crisis.
