According to the bill, the US should advocate for Taiwan’s membership in all international organisations in which statehood is not a requirement and says Taiwan should be granted observer status in other appropriate international organisations.


“Today and on all days, Congress continues to send a message to the world that America stands with Taiwan. … We [must] ensure that Taiwan has a seat at the international decision-making table, including at the United Nations,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said when her chamber passed the bill.


Taiwan had been an observer at the World Health Organisation (WHO) under the name “Chinese Taipei” since 2009 when the cross-Taiwan Strait relations were improved under the Ma Ying-jeou administration. However, the status was revoked after Tsai’s election in 2016.


Amid the global health threat of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus that started in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the US and China have clashed over Taiwan’s exclusion from WHO meetings. Taiwanese experts did manage to attend a WHO meeting in mid-February, without giving their nationalities.

We should start recognising Taiwan as a sovereign country and start full diplomatic relations with them. China should be shown it's place and we should stare right into their eyes. And also give full backing to quad...😡😡
