President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday said the nation attending the World Health
Assembly (WHA) relates directly to the nations’ right to good health and it should not be undermined for any reason.
Support and assistance from the US and other like-minded nations for Taiwan’s participation is the greatest recognition of Taipei’s many contributions to the global health system, Tsai said during a meeting with American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Chairman James Moriarty.
Tsai acknowledged the US government’s support of Taiwan’s meaningful participation in international organizations. She also thanked Moriarty for reaffirming at a public health workshop in Taipei under the US-Taiwan Global Cooperation and Training Framework earlier this week Washington’s position that Taiwan should be allowed to attend the WHA.
