TAIPEI, Taiwan — The United States would continue to support Taiwan’s participation
in the World Health Assembly (WHA), a U.S. envoy said Tuesday.
The country is still anxiously awaiting an invite to the World Health Organization’s annual decision making summit, to be held in Geneva next month.

In particular, the United States has welcomed Taiwan’s participation as an observer at the past eight World Health Assembly meetings,” American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Chairman James Moriarty told an event in Taipei.
“We look forward to Taiwan’s continued participation at this important event,” Moriarty said in his opening remarks to a workshop on public health joined by local and international experts. [FULL STORY]
