4. 中國一直以「一個中國原則」的政治立場，假借 1971 年聯合國(UN)大會 2758 號決議文，做不正確的自我解釋，來阻擾台灣參與 WHO 或參與其他國際組織。 其實，該決議文只說明「中華人民共和國取代蔣介石政權在 UN 的中國席位」 而己。該聯合國(UN)2758 號決議文內容，並沒有說出台灣是中國領土的－部 份，更沒有說出中國（北京）政府代表台灣人民。
5. 事實上 80%以上的台灣民意是反對被共產中國併吞統治。絕大多數的台灣人民 企盼台灣能維持當前自由民主而獨立的國家現狀，而且能儘速推動憲改運動， 使台灣能成為正常化國家，以台灣名義參與 UN 及 WHO 等國際組織，成為一個 負責任的國家，擔任國際組織的成員，貢獻台灣的力量，為追求全世界自由民 主，正義和平及繁榮平等的共同而目標努力奮鬥。

Joint Statement of International Conference on CORONAVIRUS and Taiwan’s Membership in the World Health Organization
May-15-2020 at the TAIWAN Legislature The International Conference on Coronavirus and Taiwan’s Membership in the World Health Organization (WHO) is organized by Taiwan United Nations Alliance (TAIUNA), a Taiwanese NGO and a leading voice in campaigning for Taiwan’s full membership in the United Nations and other international organizations.
The conference is also joint-sponsored by North America Taiwanese Medical Association (NATMA) and Formosan Association for Public Affairs (FAPA). TAIUNA and other sponsors of this event would like to issue a joint statement in advance of the conference:
We as voices among Taiwan’s civil society would like to iterate our support and approval for Taiwanese governmental efforts that have been made so far across various levels in pursuit of Taiwan’s membership in the World Health Organization (WHO). Such efforts and statements have been made by President Tsai Ing-wen, Legislative Yuan speaker Yu Shyi-kun, Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Wu, Minister of Health and Welfare Chen Shih-chung, and also legislators across all political parties of Taiwan.
We would also like thank representatives and experts from the United States, Japan, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, the Netherland, and other European Union countries in joining this international conference. Our gratitude also extends to more than 70 government officials and congressional representatives across various countries who have recorded video messages in the past months in support of the same cause and to recognize Taiwan’s’ contribution in the global fight against Coronavirus We especially thank them for publicly voicing their support for Taiwan’s inclusion in the WHO and its World Health Assembly (WHA). Prominent international leadership figures who have voiced such support include Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe and Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.
TAIUNA and sponsors of this international conference believe:
1. We express strongest support and desire for Taiwan to join and be admitted into the World Health Organization (WHO) and World Health Assembly (WHA) as a full member. This is not least because the stated goal of the WHO in its constitution specifically called for the participation of all people. The disease knows no national boundary, and Taiwan should not be excluded from mankind’s fight against Coronavirus.
2. Taiwan is a free and democratic sovereign state with 23.5 million people, governed effectively by a democratically-elected government. Polls have shown more than 84% Taiwanese public support Taiwan’s bid to join the United Nations, and 87% support Taiwan to join the WHO.
3. Taiwan, its democratically-elected government, and its people are fully willing and also capable of contributing to the advancement of global health, and to be a part of the fight against global pandemic. Since 1996 Taiwan’s government has contributed more than 6 billion USD worth of health care resources, disease prevention efforts, and humanitarian aids to various parts of the world. In the current fight against CORONAVIRUS , Taiwan has already donated tens of millions of surgical face masks to front-line medical responders and general public across multiple countries.
4. China has consistently blocked Taiwan’s membership in the WHO on the basis of the so-called “One China policy”. The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758 of 1971 is always cited by China as the legal justification for such obfuscation. However, the 2758 resolution stated clearly that it only sought to expel “the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek”while recognizing the People’s Republic of China as the only legitimate representation of China. The 2758 resolution did not mention the word Taiwan, nor did it recognize PRC government’s sovereignty over the territory or the people of Taiwan. The UN General Assembly Resolution 2758 therefore cannot be interpreted as a legal justification for excluding Taiwan from UN and WHO.
5. Polls have shown more than 80% of the Taiwanese public are against any political unification with the People’s Republic of China. Mass majority of Taiwanese people want to uphold Taiwan’s status as a sovereign, free and democratic nation independent from China. They also support amending Taiwan’s constitution to normalize Taiwan’s statehood and independence. It is the desire of the people of Taiwan to be a member in international organizations like UN and WHO, so that Taiwan can be a responsible stakeholder in the international community and be a contributing force for freedom, democracy, justice, and prosperity for all.
