Brussels/London, May 6 (CNA) Five of Taiwan's diplomatic allies have put forth a proposal for the issue of Taiwan's exclusion from the World Health Organization (WHO) to be put on the agenda for discussion by its decision-making body later this month.

The proposal was made in letters sent separately between April 21 and May 5 to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus by the governments of Nicaragua, Palau, Eswatini, Saint Lucia and the Marshall Islands.

In the letters, the five nations, all diplomatic allies of Taiwan, said the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency and importance of leaving out no one from the global health network.
