A presidential office spokesperson said Monday that China’s political maneuvering


to prevent Taiwan from participating in this year’s World Health Assembly (WHA) will result in antipathy among the Taiwanese people.

Presidential Office spokesperson Alex Huang explains the stance of Taiwan’s government, which uses the official name: the Republic of China.

“The Republic of China is a sovereign nation. Taiwan is not a province governed by the People’s Republic of China,” said Huang. “We do not recognize China’s continued attempts to exclude 23 million people from the global health body, nor do we find them acceptable. These unjust attempts will lose support from the international community and will cause an excess of antipathy among all of the Taiwanese people.”

Huang said that when it comes to health there are no boundaries because it is a universal human right. He said the WHA is dedicated to public health and is a non-political body.    [FULL  STORY]
