Foreign Minister David Lee says it remains unclear whether Taiwan will be invited to
attend this year’s World Health Assembly (WHA). Lee was speaking on Monday in an interview.
The WHA is the decision making body of the World Health Organization (WHO). This year’s meeting is scheduled to be held in Geneva in late May.
While the WHA normally begins sending letters of invitation in March, Lee says it’s too early to tell what will happen. He said a WHA official told Taiwanese diplomats stationed in Geneva that the situation is unclear.
“The WHA case is still a bit fuzzy with the situation remaining unclear. Of course, when it comes to the foreign ministry, all of our personnel — stationed in Geneva, at the ministry and around the world — will work hard to find ways to increase our chances of receiving a letter of invitation,” said Lee.
