By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Embassy of Taiwan thanked Belize for its support of Taiwan’s participation in the 75th World Health Assembly.
“The Embassy of Taiwan would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the People and the Government of Belize for their staunch support of Taiwan’s bid to participate in the WHA!! Thank you, Belize!!,” tweeted the Embassy of Taiwan in Belize.
The note of appreciation comes after the Government of Belize and the Ministry of Health & Wellness supported the Republic of China Taiwan’s participation at the 75th World Health Assembly as an observer to help in the fight against COVID-19.
That support was expressed in a statement by the Government of Belize Press Office.
“The Government of Belize remains committed to the joint efforts led by the World Health Organization and reiterates its support for the inclusion of the Republic of China (Taiwan) as an observer at the 75th WHA to help in the fight against COVID-19, its emerging variants and sharing of critical information on genetic sequencing,” said the statement.
According to the statement, the Government of Belize is of the opinion that Taiwan’s expertise and input will benefit all member states in the global health fight against COVID-19.
The statement came on the occasion of the 150th Executive Board of the WHA on Monday, January 24.
Recognizing the assistance Taiwan has given Belize and other countries in their COVID-19 response efforts, Belize considers Taiwan’s participation in the WHA as imperative, the statement concluded.
