A $7.3 billion annual peacekeeping budget is due to be adopted by the UN General Assembly on Friday.
On Wednesday the United Nations agreed on the amount, cutting $600 million from current costs and slicing 7.5% off the US bill after US President Donald Trump called for a cut in funding.
The 193-member UN budget committee agreed on $7.3 billion to fund 13 peacekeeping missions and a logistics support office.
