Geneva, May 22 (CNA) Taiwan’s top health official said Taiwan is important to the
World Health Assembly (WHA) and described it as unjust for Taiwan to be excluded from the annual conference of the WHA, which opened in Geneva on Monday.
Speaking at an international press conference to call attention to Taiwan’s exclusion, Health and Welfare Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) said Taiwan wanted to share its health care experience at the annual meeting but was unfairly excluded because of China’s obstruction.
He argued that the aim of the United Nations was to change the world and enhance the welfare of all people, and no one should be excluded. [FULL STORY]
