The United States senate-house passed a bill to solidify and show their support for Taiwan to regain their observer status in the World Health Organization (WHO) and takes a step to counter China.
The bill says that the COVID-19 pandemic excels all borders and the country Taiwan should not be excluded from the world health body. The government is set to formulate policies to assist the nation to regain WHO observer status.
"Taiwan is an important partner to the United States, and it is critical that the administration improve its strategy to help Taiwan obtain observer status," Jim Risch, member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said.
The East Asian country started it's efforts to join WHO in 1997 along with support of the US. However, Beijing had protested strongly against the US decision for Taiwan.
