By BBN Staff: The Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has thanked its diplomatic allies for the show of support at the United Nations General Assembly held in New York last month.
Taiwan, through its Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), says that its diplomatic allies showed staunch support for Taiwan’s meaningful participation in UN activities; participation that Taiwan continues to be denied.
The MOFA said that Taiwan greatly appreciated the support shown by Belize, Guatemala, Haiti, the Holy See, Honduras, Kingdom of Eswatini, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Paraguay, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Tuvalu, as the countries urged the U.N. to resolve the issue of Taiwan’s exclusion from the UN either through their addresses at the General Assembly or via letters sent to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Taiwan also received support from Alex Azar, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, during the GA’s primary health care event. He expressed disappointment at the country’s exclusion from multilateral efforts on disease preparedness and health security. The MOFA said that Taiwan, and its population of 23 million people, will continue working to realize the Sustainable Development Goals.
Belize, a diplomatic ally of Taiwan for some 30 years, expressed its support through a joint letter to the Secretary-General with other allies, as well as through the speech of Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington, who called on the UN to end the ’embargo” on Taiwan
