Beijing blocks Taiwan's application to the U.N.
[Beijing, August 8, 2003] A spokesman for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said today that the initiative by Gambia and 14 other nations to request that the 58th U.N. consider the issue of Taiwan’s application for admission to the U.N. is an “intervention of internal affairs.” China has successfully denied Taiwan’s attempt to enter the U.N. for ten consecutive years.
Taiwan, however, publicly hopes to gain support from the U.S. on this motion. The U.N. General Assembly will be scheduled to start in September.
