TAIPEI, Taiwan — A day before online registration for this year’s World Health
Assembly (WHA) closes, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that no progress had been made in Taiwan’s efforts to gain an invitation to the global summit.
The Foreign Ministry stated yesterday that Taiwan still had not received an invitation to the decision-making summit of the World Health Organization (WHO), and that “there is no new progress.”
Since 2009, Taiwan has attended the WHA under the designation of Chinese Taipei, under an agreement between the then-ruling Kuomintang administration and the government in Beijing and the World Health Organization. [FULL STORY]
