Donald Trump calls for stronger international cooperation on UN reform

"To honor the people of our nations, we must ensure that no one- and no member state- shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden, and that's militarily or financially", Trump said.

The Kingdom of Bahrain was one of the first countries to welcome and sign the political declaration called for by the American President to support the Secretary-General's plan to reform the United Nations.

"I think one of the things other United Nations delegates are trying to do is to create as inviting atmosphere as possible here for Trump, so that he doesn't go off-script".

Trump is scheduled to hold bilateral meetings Monday with French President Emmanuel Macron and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
