Great, let's give up our bid to enter the UN for a downgraded status what will also be rejected. ICRT reports ...
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it is unsurprised by China's opposition
to Taiwan's United Nations bid.
The United Nations' Secretary General received a letter from China earlier
this month, expressing Beijing's unchanged stance toward Taiwan's U-N bid.
However, the M-O-F-A says that despite China's opposition, it still sees some
good will from Beijing.
In the letter, Beijing that relations between Taiwan and China have shown
"a good momentum of improvement and development" since March, thanks to
the concerted efforts of both sides of the Taiwan Strait, and that both
sides should continue to work toward further peaceful development.
However, the letter was also said that a proposal to allow Taiwan more
meaningful participation in specialized agencies within the U-N intends to
create "two Chinas" ... or "one China, one Taiwan" ... which the Chinese
government is firmly against.
The M-O-F-A has responded in a statement reiterating that the basic rights
of the people of the Republic of China to participate in international
organizations and activities should be respected.
