Last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who sits on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, joined a letter to the World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus concerning Taiwan’s exclusion from the World Health Organization’s second session of the World Health Assembly (WHA).
“Taiwan has more than earned its place in the WHA with its contributions to global public health and work to save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. The time to restore Taiwan’s observer status is now,” Yoho insisted.
“The United States must continue to enhance our strategic relationship with Taiwan against an increasingly aggressive China,” Rubio said. “Taiwan is an important democratic partner whose security is critical to advancing America’s national security interests in the Indo-Pacific.”
