US bill outlines UN status of Taiwan.

SOLIDARITY ACT: An amendment includes new paragraphs calling on the US to ‘oppose any attempts by China to resolve Taiwan’s status by distorting language’.

UN Resolution 2758 did not address Taiwan’s representation in the UN, the Taiwan International Solidarity Act passed by the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee says.

The bill was introduced in the US House of Representatives in February to amend the Taiwan Allies International Protection and Enhancement Initiative (TAIPEI) Act of 2019.

The amendment also reiterates that the US “opposes any initiative that seeks to change Taiwan’s status without the consent of the people.”.

In Taipei, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday thanked the US Congress for its bipartisan support of Taiwan’s participation in international organizations.

Passing the bill ahead of the 76th World Health Assembly, which is to begin this weekend, is especially meaningful, the ministry said. »
