WASHINGTON - US lawmakers were poised to cut spending on the United Nations by hundreds of millions of dollars, less than a week after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon came to Congress to ask for continued strong support.

US congressional aides said the expected $377 million in cuts -- much of which would hit UN peacekeeping -- were unlikely to put the United States in arrears on its dues because it has built up significant credits at the United Nations that could be used.
