US President Donald Trump on May 16 said his administration is considering restoring some funding to the World Health Organization.

He said numerous proposals about the World Health Organization are being considered, including one in which Washington would pay about 10 percent of its former level.

In a posting on Twitter, Trump wrote the payments could be 10% of what the United States has historically paid to the international health agency, "matching much lower China payments." He said no final decision has been made yet and funds are currently still frozen.

Trump suspended US contributions to the WHO on April 14, accusing it of promoting China's "disinformation" about the coronavirus outbreak and saying his administration would launch a review of the organization.

WHO officials denied the claims and China has insisted it was transparent and open.
