Washington, May 17 (CNA) Twenty-one U.S. senators co-signed a letter to U.S.
Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price Wednesday to “express profound concern” over Taiwan’s exclusion from this year’s World Health Assembly (WHA) due to Chinese obstruction.
The WHA, the decision-making body of the World Health Organization, is scheduled to take place in Geneva, Switzerland from May 22-31.
They also expressed hope that the United States “will renew its efforts, with like-minded countries, to affirm observer status for Taiwan at future WHAs, a policy held by the past two administrations.” [FULL STORY]
