Despite differences between the United States and the United Nations, majority of the Americans have opined that the global organisation was still needed today. A survey held recently said that 73 per cent of the people who participated in the survey expressed the opinion.
The Americans remained overwhelmingly united in their belief that their country should maintain an active role in the UN. About 85 per cent of the voters said that it is “very important” or “somewhat important.” Apart from this, six in ten voters believed that the United Nations supported America’s objectives around the world, said the survey by the Better World Campaign.
The survey noted that 59 per cent of the voters believed that the United States should try to finds out new diplomatic solutions rather than leaving the negotiating table. This was clear when looking at the percentage of voters who favoured that America should never withdraw from the World Health Organisation. The survey said that 67 per cent of the voters had a favorable opinion of WHO.
“Even as Americans grapple with the economic impact of COVID-19, 68 percent of voters say the U.S. should pay our dues to the UN on time and in full,” said Peter Yeo, President of the Better World Campaign.
When 68 per cent of the people said that the US should pay the dues to the United Nations on time and in full, 69 per cent also opined that peacekeeping dues should also be paid.
