|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Jiang Yu's Remarks on the Restoration of the Lawful Rights of China in OIE|
Q: OIE has adopted a resolution to restore the lawful rights of China. Do you have any comment?
A: On May 25, OIE adopted a resolution with an overwhelming majority to restore the lawful rights of the People's Republic of China as a sovereign state on the basis of the one China principle, deciding that Taiwan will continue to participate in OIE activities as a non-sovereign member in the name of Chinese Taipei. The vast majority of OIE members voted for the resolution, which manifests that the international community is overwhelmingly supportive of the one China principle.
The Central Government cares for the well-being of our Taiwan compatriots, supporting the animal health undertakings in Taiwan Island. The resolution does not exclude the participation of Taiwan's health authorities in relevant OIE activities. The Central Government stands ready to further enhance the cross-Straits cooperation in animal health.
