Rules-based world order challenged by US: EU’s Tusk

La Malbaie (Canada) (AFP) – US President Donald Trump’s attempt to overthrow or renegotiate a series of international agreements constitutes a threat to the post Cold War order, EU president Donald Tusk warned Friday.

“It is evident that the America president and the rest of the group continue to disagree on trade, climate change and the Iran nuclear deal,” Tusk told reporters ahead of the G7 summit in the Canadian town of La Malbaie, north of Quebec. 

“What worries me most, however, is that fact that the rules-based international order is being challenged, quite surprisingly not by the usual suspects but by its main architect and guarantor, the US.”
