New Zealand backs Taiwan membership of WHO as US lawmakers ask others to support

’Taiwan has something to offer at the WHO right at the moment,’ NZ Finance Minister Grant Robertson said when asked if New Zealand would support Taiwan’s inclusion in WHO as an observer. The statement comes as China continues to object to Taiwanese membership of the United Nation which includes WHO. U.S. lawmakers are calling for more than 50 countries to support Taiwan’s entry into WHO.

This absolutely should be done. That it legitimizes Taiwan (ROC) is much needed given how China has sought to isolate the nation for the past 60+ years.

Taiwan is the China as it should be. What's now called the PRC is occupied by the CCP. One day it will collapse like the USSR or other Socialist regimes.

I wish EU would support this as well. Also I hope China gets to pay for all the damage delaying information about covid 19 has caused.....

China shouldn't have a saying on this, they should instead be banned from all serious international organizations. Not only because China corrupted the WHO, but also for oppressing their own people and democratic neighbors in the region. #FreeHongkong #FreeTaiwan #BoycottChina

Recognition of Taiwan is essential in protecting their way of life. Lets hope the UN committee get behind this notion!


Taiwan did not lockdown but instead chose sensible policies far more becoming of a democracy and much more effective than many in the west who chose to emulate a totalitarian police state. Our response to this will rightly be a shameful stain on our history for many centuries, while Taiwan and the small number of other courageous nations that withstood international pressure can rightly claim moral superiority.
