  1. horray for a name that we don’t see usually because it will lead to people being curious and searching it and educate people.

  4. Why would the Chinese do such a thing ? If there 8s a problem then 8ts better to have all the brains you got to try and find a solution. Just because we don’t like someone dies not mean they can’t come up with a good solution.

  5. China is not the one making decisions. WHO is a UN organization. UN does not recognize Taiwan in the first place.

    China replaced Taiwan in the UN based on a vote by the US. In other words, US voted to kick Taiwan out of the UN.


    On 25 October 1971, the [United States](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States) moved that a separate vote be taken on the provisions in the resolution “to expel forthwith the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek from the place which they unlawfully occupied at the United Nations and in all the organizations related to it” in the draft resolution. By this the United States was proposing that while the credentials of the PRC representatives would be accepted and the PRC would be seated as China’s representative with a seat on the Security Council, the ROC would continue to enjoy representation in the General Assembly. The proposition was legally untenable.[[48]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-Pakistan_Horizon_1971_pp._75-79-49) While China was a founding member, Taiwan had been a member of the United Nations; the presence of its representatives at the UN having always been predicated on its claim to represent China.[[48]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-Pakistan_Horizon_1971_pp._75-79-49) The motion was rejected by a vote of 61 to 51, with 16 abstentions. The representative of ROC made a declaration that the rejection of the 22-power draft resolution calling for a two-thirds majority was a flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter which governed the expulsion of Member States and that the delegation of the Republic of China had decided not to take part in any further proceedings of the General Assembly.[[41]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-UNYB1971-42) With the support from 26 African [UN Member States](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UN_Member_States)[[49]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-50) and in accordance with Article 18 of the UN Charter,[[50]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-51) the Assembly then adopted [Resolution 2758](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_General_Assembly_Resolution_2758), with 76 countries supporting, 35 countries opposing, 17 countries abstaining, and 3 countries non-voting, withdrawing recognition of the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek as the legitimate representative of China, and recognizing the Government of PRC as the only legitimate representative of China to the United Nations.[[51]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-52)[[52]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-53) At a Security Council meeting on 23 November 1971, after the General Assembly passed Resolution 2758, the President of the Council and the other representatives made statements welcoming the representatives of the People’s Republic of China. The ROC lost not only its Security Council seat, but any representation in the UN.[[41]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_and_the_United_Nations#cite_note-UNYB1971-42)
