The government is implementing a plan to draw international attention to Taiwan’s
exclusion from the United Nations. The plan coincides with the annual UN General Assembly debates, which open Tuesday in New York.
Bob Chen, head of the foreign ministry’s Department of International Organizations, highlighted parts of the plan on Tuesday.
Chen said the government will hold a series of events in New York during the debates. These events will focus on Taiwan’s success in implementing the UN’s sustainable development goals. They aim to show Taiwan as a key partner for the rest of the world in achieving these goals.
Chen also said the government has asked Taiwan’s diplomatic allies to write a joint letter to the UN secretary-general. He said Taiwan is working to get allies to speak out on its behalf during the debates, and to get other friendly nations to offer other kinds of help.
