Taiwan yet to receive invite for key WHO meet due to China’s “Obstruction”

Expressing its displeasure, Taiwan’s Foreign Ministry has said that the island nation has not yet received an invite to a key World Health Organization (WHO) meeting which would take place this week to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. The move comes due to obstruction from China.

“The Foreign Ministry expresses strong regret and dissatisfaction at China’s obstruction of Taiwan participating in the WHO and the WHO’s continuing to neglect the health and human rights of Taiwan’s 23.5 million people,” said Taiwan’s Foreign Ministry in a statement.

Last week, the U.S. mission in Geneva, urged WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to invite Chinese-claimed but democratically ruled Taiwan to the WHO’s decision-making body, the World Health Assembly (WHA).
