Taiwan WHO Annual Meeting Observer Not Allowed to Participate
At the annual meeting of the World Health Organization (WHO), Taiwan, which is not a member, aimed to participate as an observer, and proposed that countries in Central and South America with diplomatic relations also participate.
However, the chairman of the General Assembly said on September 9 that he would not discuss the proposal as a result of private talks among member states, and Taiwan was not allowed to participate.
Taiwan’s participation in observers was supported by the United States, Japan, and others, while China strongly opposed it.
Taiwan’s foreign ministry expressed strong discontent, as “China has blocked Taiwan’s participation in the WHO and the WHO continues to ignore the health and human rights of 23.5 million Taiwanese people.”
