Taipei, April 7 (CNA) Beijing’s attempt to force a change in Taiwan’s designation at Lions Clubs International (LCI) has failed after members from around the world at a recent meeting decided to shelve the Chinese proposal, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Sunday.

At a meeting of LCI’s international board of directors held in Reykjavik, Iceland Saturday, China proposed that Taiwan’s designation in the organization should be changed from “MD300 Taiwan” to “MD300 China Taiwan,” MOFA said, citing a report from the Washington-based Chinese-language Epoch Times.

LCI is one of the largest and most active voluntary institutions in the world.
