Taiwan perseveres in request for inclusion in United Nations

TAIWAN / USA, (Taiwan Today) – Prior to the 78th edition of the United Nations General Assembly, set to take place September 5 at the UN headquarters in New York, the Taiwan government reiterated its request to be included in the organization’s system after having been excluded for over five decades, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) August 29.

The theme for this year’s UN GA is “Rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity: Accelerating action on the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals towards peace, prosperity, progress and the sustainability for all.”

The MOFA said that the government continues to urge its diplomatic allies to voice support for Taiwan’s inclusion during the upcoming General Debate on September 19, 26. The country will also appeal to its allies’ permanent UN representatives to send a joint letter to Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, urging resolution of the issue.

In addition, the MOFA said that the appeal to the UN is based on the fact that UN Resolution 2758 was misinterpreted by the organization, causing Taiwan’s exclusion and thus it should be clarified. Taiwan declares that it did not authorize the Peoples’ Republic of China to represent Taiwan in the UN.

MOFA said that the UN should take active measures to uphold peace, stability and security in the Taiwan Strait and its neighbouring regions. In addition, MOFA hopes for the country’s meaningful participation in all UN meetings, mechanisms and events, particularly those related to UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Unite for Peace in the World and Taiwan’s inclusion in the UN

In support of readmission to the global body, minister of foreign affairs Jaushieh Joseph Wu wrote an article published in international mainstream media, calling on the global community to condemn China’s irresponsible military provocation, which disrupts cross-strait stability.

A video entitled “To Equality” was also launched August 28 to showcase how Taiwan tackles global issues and implements UN. Sustainable Development Goals. Sideline events will be held during the 78th assembly in support of rejoining the organization, the MOFA said.
