Taiwan wants Philippines to back its UN inclusion  

TAIWAN wants the Philippines to back its bid for inclusion in global discussions including those in the United Nations (UN), as world leaders gather in the US for an annual meeting. 

In a statement, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines Representative Peiyung Hsu said Taiwan “sincerely hopes” that its closest neighbor “could continue to voice their support for Taiwan’s meaningful participation in the UN system.” 

“Taiwan and the Philippines enjoy long-time cordial people-to-people relations,” he said. “As close neighbors and maritime nations, Taiwan and the Philippines uphold the values of freedom, democracy and the rules-based international order.” 

Mr. Hsu asked the UN to reconsider the “One China” policy, saying it is misleading because Taiwan is governed separately. He said Taiwan could only be represented in the global arena by their democratically elected government. 

The pro-Beijing policy prevents Taiwan from participating in world conventions, including those led by the UN.  

“By deliberately conflating its ‘One China’ principle with the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758 — the resolution that determined who represents China in the organization some 50 years ago — Beijing is misleading the world by spreading the fallacy that Taiwan is part of the People’s Republic of China,” he added. — Kyle Aristophere T.
