US lawmakers issue statement calling for Taiwan’s inclusion in UN

  • U.S. lawmakers issued a statement that expressed “steadfast support for Taiwan’s meaningful participation in international organizations”. The statement was issued by the co-chairs of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, Gerry Connolly, Mario Diaz-Balart, Ami Bera, and Andy Barr. The statement rejected prior actions by the U.N., most notably the adoption of UNGA Resolution 2758, which prohibited Taiwan from such meaningful participation on the world stage.
  • U.S. lawmakers alleged that U.N. Resolution 2758 “does not address the issue of the representation of Taiwan and its people in the United Nations or any related organizations.”
  • U.S. lawmakers added that Taiwan had proven to be a responsible and reliable partner in supporting global health, expanding regional prosperity, and promoting international security. As the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) continues to encroach upon neighbors, including Taiwan, the United States must once again demonstrate resolute support for this strategic partner.
