  1. Politics again, is there a “one Korea policy”? in WHO there can be The Republic of Korea, S. Korea and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, N. Korea, yet there can’t be a Taiwan?

  2. My explanation about UN2758 and china’s lied had deleted by you, also deleted by UN at UN’s comments, shame!!

  3. According to the UN Charter , Mr Derek Walon you should use the full name of the China which is the “Republic of China” rather than CHINA only. Since you are the legal counsel. You should respect to all Chinese and follow the UN Charter!

  4. Taiwan DPP politicians are just playing politics. WHO has no authority to decide Taiwan position yet they keep asking them. The authority is the 194 member states. Some US politicians said they will support Taiwan. They should ask the other 193 countries too.

  5. COVID-19?WHO 🇮🇳😷📲. INDIA .KERALA .WHO.📲💉🔬😷9️⃣6️⃣4️⃣5️⃣3️⃣3️⃣9️⃣2️⃣0️⃣6️⃣🔬🇮🇳

  6. COVID-19(84)  //  The Global Plandemic //   2 + 2 ≠ 5  
    “In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”   G. Orwell

  7. On August 2, 2019, the CDC ordered the sudden shutdown of the P3 and P4 labs in Fort Detrick, Maryland (# 55), two weeks after the suspected pneumonia epidemic opening the above timeline. At Fort Detrick, just 40 miles from Greenspring’s retirement home, the U.S. military is researching the world’s most dangerous infectious agents

  8. CCP 🇨🇳established in 1949, Taiwan (ROC) 🇹🇼established in 1911. Taiwan is never part of China. China uses their political pressure to isolate Taiwan in the world and educates their people falsely that Taiwan is part of China.

  9. ‪Taiwan🇹🇼is a democratic country. Taiwan has its own people, lands, rights, government, passport, currency, etc. Taiwan has never been ruled by CCP. Taiwanese never has to pay tax to China. As the global citizen, Taiwan should be included into WHA in May.‬

  10. Taiwan can join WHA73 if DrTedros issues an invitation or a related resolution is OK’d at the assembly. Claims by WHO Secretariat to the contrary are wrong! We urge the UN health agency to allow the country’s meaningful participation in its activities, mechanisms & meetings.
