"Deeply regret US decision to suspend funding to WHO," High Representative Josep Borrell said in a tweet. 

"There is no reason justifying this move at a moment when their efforts are needed more than ever to help contain and mitigate the coronavirus pandemic," he said. 

"Only by joining forces we can overcome this crisis that knows no borders."
