Monday May 10, 2021 was the last day for the 74th World Health Assembly online registration, 5 years in the role Taiwan has not been invited since 2017, just because of Taiwan rejected the so-called 1992 consensus. However, the secretariat of WHO works like a department of PRC and the secretary general Tedros Adhanom acts like a staff of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They follow whatever China instructed them to do. China’s Foreign Affairs department criticized the Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s claim “Taiwan’s exclusion from the WHA would imperil global health objectives” as a political lie. The CCP said “no one cares more about the health and welfare of Taiwan people than we do. Taiwan’s participation in international organizations, including WHO-related events, should be handled in terms of the one China principle.
Taiwan has never been a part of China
What a lie! China repeated outcries Taiwan is an inalienable part of China without having any legal document to back up their claim. Taiwan’s full sovereignty was ceded in perpetuity to Japan on April 17, 1895 under the Shimonoseki Treaty. China claimed ownership of Taiwan and accused the US of violating the UN Charter and invading Chinese territory (ref. to Taiwan) after WWII. The UNSC 530th meeting rejected the accusation by a vote of 9 to 1 on November 30, 1950, gave China and the international community a very clear answer. The UN Resolution 2758 announced on October 25, 1971 clearly specified that PRC is the sole legitimate government of China, not mentioned Taiwan at all. Because Taiwan has never been a part of China since its birth, either ROC established in 1912 or PRC in 1949.
COVID-19 variants increased risk of death
The COVID-19 originated from Wuhan China in December 2019 has caused over 160 million people infected and over 3.33 million deaths around the world. It is a global disease the virus has spread everywhere. Now, it became a deadly pandemic. The virus has travelled from China to East Asia, Middle East, Europe, North America, South America and now seriously attacked South Asia, turning India in a big trouble with more than 300K new cases and 3000 deaths a day. Japan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia are also in trouble. Scientists and medical doctors all agree that the COVID-19 variants are more contagious. They appear to spread more easily and might have an increased risk of death.
Let’s fight the pandemic together
Any single spark can start a prairie fire. The global community must join hands to work closely together to overcome the pandemic. How come to let Taiwan fight against the pandemic alone? we can’t afford to neglect any potential outbreak from any corner of the world. The main objective of the World Health Organization is to enable all people to attain the highest possible level of heath. Taiwanese as a human being in the world deserve the right to participate in the global health community.
Taiwan fights at forefront against CCP virus
Taiwan has more than a million people who work or live in China, we are at the very forefront of disease surveillance for future epidemics and pandemics. Even though we are so careful to fight for the pandemic, not just protecting our own people also helps people around the world. Unfortunately, we are still blocked out by the World Health Organization to participate in the World Health Assembly just because China said no.
China twisted UN R2758
China always misinterprets the UN R2758 to reject Taiwan’s application. But it is ridiculous. The US Congress has proposed a bill called Taiwan International Solidarity Act on April 19 to clarify that the UN Resolution only deals with the issue of China’s representative, it totally has nothing to do with Taiwan. China doesn’t represent Taiwan, neither owns Taiwan’s sovereignty. What a shame China always unscrupulously bullies its neighbor Taiwan without having any legal document to back their bullshits.
Taiwan is a reliable partner
The Secretary Blinken said on May 7 “Taiwan is a reliable partner, a vibrant democracy and a force for good in the world, and its exclusion from the WHA would be detrimental to our collective international efforts to get the pandemic under control and prevent future health crises.”
Taiwan can help also needs help
Yes, Taiwan has committed to be a good member in the international community, Taiwan is ready to do its best to contribute to the world. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Taiwan has donated tens of millions of masks to the world. Yes, Taiwan can help, and Taiwan is helping. But Taiwan also needs help to join the international community, especially the WHO.
Please help Taiwan to WHO for meaningful participation
The 74th WHA is to take place virtually from May 24 to June 1 this year. The worldwide Taiwanese strongly voice out to the governing authority on Taiwan and the international community. Please use the name of Taiwan to apply and help Taiwan to WHA! Please help Taiwan to become a member of WHO for meaningful participation.
