China backs WHO chief amid Taiwan racism spat

Apr 09, 2020 20:21 IST

China's foreign ministry on Thursday backed World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus amid a spat with Taiwan. Tedros accused Taiwan of instigating racist personal attacks on him at a briefing on Wednesday, prompting Taiwan's foreign ministry on Thursday to strongly protest. At China's insistence, Taiwan has been barred from the UN and the WHO and even stripped of its observer status at the annual World Health Assembly. At the same time, it has one of the most robust public health systems in the world.
