WW3 fears surge as China ‘obstructs’ Taiwan from key WHO meeting amid soaring tensions

On Sunday evening, Taiwan’s Foreign Ministry said it had not yet been invited to the virtual WHO meeting of 194 member states.

It said: “The Foreign Ministry expresses strong regret and dissatisfaction at China’s obstruction of Taiwan participating in the WHO and the WHO’s continuing to neglect the health and human rights of Taiwan’s 23.5 million people.”

The ministry added that the WHO’s refusal to invite Taiwan to the meeting due to the political situation makes a mockery of the organisation’s claim to promote “health for all”.
