 The Chinese side asks the World Health Organization not to invite Taiwan to attend the meeting. Ministry of foreign affairs response


[World Wide Web Roundup] May 8, 2018 Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Geng chaired a regular press conference. Q: I know you answered the questions about Taiwan and the World Health Assembly yesterday. Does China require the who not to issue an invitation to the Taiwan World Health Assembly? A: Taiwan is not a member of the WHO, nor has it been invited. Of course, it can not participate in the World Health Assembly. Yesterday, I have already said that the Taiwan region has been participating in the World Health Assembly for 8 years in the name and observer of China Taipei, which is a special arrangement through consultation on both sides of the two sides, on the basis of the 92 consensus that adheres to the one China principle. The DPP authorities did not recognize the 92 consensus that embodied the one China principle and undermined the political basis for Taiwan to participate in the World Health Assembly. This year, the Taiwan region has no invitation to participate, and the responsibility lies entirely with the DPP authorities. Question: can you clarify whether this is because the Chinese side has had some form of communication with who in Taiwan? A: as a member of the WHO, China has maintained close communication with the WHO Secretariat and other members of the World Health Organization.
