Taiwan's participation in WHO Assembly rejected

World Health Organization Assembly President Ahmed Robleh Abdilleh revealed on Monday that a request by 13 WHO members for Taiwan to be admitted as an observer to the assembly had been denied.

The decision was made in response to Beijing's diplomatic demands to isolate Taipei, the assembly said, with China reiterating that the island should not be treated as an independent country. "This political manipulation will only be met with opposition from all parties," stated the Chinese ambassador to the UN Chen Xu ahead of the Geneva meeting.
