According to the document, by 2018, should be adopted a global instrument to respond to the problem of mass movement of refugees and migrants.

In a statement Saturday, Haley said that then-President Obama's decision to commit the United States to the process by signing the non-binding New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants in September 2016 had come at the expense of America's interest.

The American Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said the country would continue its "generosity" in supporting migrants and refugees around the world, but that "our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone".

Lajcak regretted the USA decision, saying no country can handle global migration alone.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has been informed of the decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to end participation in the process that would achieve the first intergovernmentally negotiated agreement on worldwide migration by 2018, said the U.S. mission to the United Nations in a press statement on Saturday. These commitments are known as the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants.

"We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter the country", she stressed.

Haley said Trump made the decision, and emphasized that Americans should determine their own policies on immigration. Furthermore, they committed to strengthening global governance of migration.

Ambassador Nikki Haley said the US will continue in its "generosity" by supporting migrants and refugees around the world.

Russian parliament to bar all US media from accessing it
Peskov said Russian media had been subjected to "outrageous" attacks in the United States which violated freedom of speech. Peskov said that the Russian parliament might give an emotional response to the new Congressional restrictions on RT.

He added that the United States "has the experience and expertise to help ensure that this process leads to a successful outcome".

On Friday, Trump also decided the United States would not participate in the Mexico talks, a three-day meeting on the New York Declaration and discuss humane ways of dealing with millions of migrants. Haley reportedly said the US should continue to take part in the negotiation process.

Trump has been under fire by many rights groups for his policies towards refugees since taking office.

"The president risks isolating the USA for the sake of his own fans - and his own ego", the op-ed said.
