Taiwan's exclusion from UN unjustified (letter)


by Harrison Liao

News Weekly, October 9, 2004
Sir,

I am writing to stress that Taiwan has been successfully democratised over the past decade.

This not only demonstrates that Taiwan continues to treasure and pursue the universal values of democracy, freedom and human rights, but more than ever also shows that Taiwan has developed its own identity and values, which sharply contrast with that of the People's Republic of China, a one-party dictatorship.

The continuing exclusion of Taiwan from the United Nations is not only against the founding principles of the United Nations and the doctrine of universality in the UN Charter, but also constitutes a denial of the most fundamental right of the people of Taiwan to participate in international organisations and activities.

As a result of this exclusion, the needs, voices and views of the 23 million people of Taiwan (a population larger than Australia's) have been, and are continuing to be, excluded on the international stage.

I strongly support Taiwan, a peace-loving and responsible nation, in its push to become a member of the UN, so that it can contribute towards the common good for all.

Harrison Liao,
President,
Taiwanese Association of Australia
(Melbourne Chapter Inc.),
Box Hill, Vic.
