Spokesperson on the rejected motion concerning the so-called question of Taiwan's "participation" in the United Nations(15/09/2001)
2004/04/19

In the early hours of 15 September, the General Affairs Committee of the 56th Session of the UN General Assembly once again rejected the motion tabled by Gambia and a few other countries which called for the inclusion into the agenda of the current section of the UN General Assembly the so-called question of Taiwan's "participation" in the United Nations. This once again fully reflected the resolute position of the vast majority of UN members to safeguard the authority of the UN Charter and UN Resolution 2758 and adhere to the one China principle. This year, the Taiwan authorities tried every means and made every attempt to push through the motion on Taiwan's "participation" in the United Nations. However, they could not escape the fate of another failure. It has been proven again and again that any attempt to go against the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and the will of the vast number of UN members is futile and against the will of the people. The splitist attempt of the Taiwan authorities to create "two Chinas" or "one China, one Taiwan" in the United Nations is doomed to failure
