WHO Annual Meeting 18 May 18 0:33
The World Health Organization’s annual meeting, which will focus most on how to deal with the new coronavirus, will be held on July 1. With the United States and China at odds over the source of the virus and taiwan’s participation in the General Assembly, it is unclear whether countries will be able to show a united direction toward containing the infection.
The ANNUAL MEETING OF THE WORLD WILL BE HELD AT 1P.1 PM JAPAN TIME, WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF THE MEMBER STATES.
In response to the spread of the new coronavirus globally, kotoshi will be conducted in a video conference manner and will be scheduled for two days, which is shorter than usual.
The biggest focus is on countermeasures to contain the new coronavirus infection, and countries will discuss the latest situations and initiatives.
However, the United States and China are deepening their conflict over the source of the virus and their response to the spread of the virus, and the US has become increasingly critical of who, claiming that it is “closer to China.”
In addition, Beijing, which advocates “one China” principle over its participation in the General Assembly in Taiwan’s observer qualifications that are not a member of the WHO, strongly opposes taiwan’s participation as a part of China, while the United States supports participation.
At the beginning of the general meeting, it is expected that taiwan will be debated on whether to qualify as an observer, but there is a possibility that the United States, China and other countries will also insist on their positions and become a fierce response.
The WHO would like to set out a willingness for member states to work together to contain the infection at the General Assembly, but it is unclear whether they will be able to show a consistent direction amid the continuing political conflict between the United States and China.
