UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The new U.S. ambassador into the Us, Nikki Haley, pledged on Friday to overhaul the modern world body and warned U.S. allies when they just do not support Washington, then she actually is "taking names" and often will respond.
Haley made brief remarks to reporters as she came to the modern world body's headquarters in New york city to show her credentials to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
"Our goal together with the administration would be to show value along at the U.N. and in what ways that we'll show value would be to show our strength, show our voice, provide the backs of the allies make certain that the allies have our back in the process," Haley said.
"For individuals who don't have our back, we're taking names, we’re going to make points to respond to that accordingly," added Republican President Donald Trump's U.N. envoy.
Haley, merely South Carolina's Republican governor when Trump picked her for that post, has little foreign policy without any U.S. administration experience.
French U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre and British U.N. Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said they were looking forward to handling Haley. The nation, Britain and France, coupled with Russia and China, are permanent veto-wielding people the U.N. Security Council.
After her meeting Guterres, a U.S. official said that they "a great and productive conversation about ways they can come together to reform the U.N."
Haley told reporters, "Everything that's working, we're intending to make it better, everything that's broken we're going to make an attempt to fix, and whatever definitely seems to be obsolete and not necessary we're going to get rid of."
According to a draft executive order published by The Daily Beast, Trump uses a committee – including his secretary of state, attorney general and director of national intelligence -to carry out a one-year post on U.S. funding to international organizations with all the purpose of almost halving voluntary funding.
A senior U.S. administration official said on Friday that no such executive order was "expected right now."
The Country is definitely the largest contributor to the N’t, paying 22 percent of the $5.4 billion core U.N. budget and 28 percent from the $7.9 billion U.N. peacekeeping budget. These are assessed contributions – agreed via the U.N. General Assembly – without voluntary payments.
U.N. agencies, much like the U.N. Development Programme, the children's agency UNICEF, the earth Food Programme along with the U.N. Population Fund, are funded voluntarily.
Last year, Trump accepted Twitter to disparage the 193-member world body as soon as the United States abstained in a very Dec. 23 U.N. Security Council vote, allowing the adoption of the resolution demanding a conclusion to settlement building by U.S. ally Israel.
Trump, who had called on President Barack Obama's administration to veto the resolution, warned that "things will likely be different" within the N’t after he took office on Jan. 20.
