In a joint statement, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Vice-President Josep Borrell called on US President Donald Trump to rethink his decision of withdrawing from the World Health Organization.

Iran Press/Europe: "Global cooperation and solidarity through multilateral efforts are the only effective and viable means of winning this battle that the world is facing. WHO must continue to be able to lead the international response to pandemics, current, and future. For this, the participation and support of all are necessary and essential.", the statement reads, according to Euronews.

"Actions that weaken international results should be avoided. In this context, we urge the United States to reconsider the decision it announced".

Trump on Friday charged that the WHO didn't respond adequately to the pandemic and accused the U.N. agency of being under China's "total control."
