China rejects US call to invite Taiwan to World Health Assembly

China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian stated on Thursday that China firmly opposes the intentions of the United States to invite Taiwan as an observer to the 75th World Health Assembly.

The representative of the Chinese government urges the US to abide by the one-China policy and the provisions of the three China-US joint communique. "We strongly protest the US statement," he added.

According to a statement released on Wednesday by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, US authorities favor inviting Taiwan to participate as an "observer" in the 75th World Health Assembly held May 22-28.
