    UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has spent the past two days in Washington lobbying members of Congress and the Trump administration against cutting US funding for United Nations operations.

    Trump's proposed budget for next year would cut the US contribution to basic UN operations by $440mn.

    But Guterres has also been addressing other global crises.
